To Enid, Phyllis and all the family,

Heartfelt condolences from me and from Abby and Max.

My mother, Ruth, and your mother, Ida, were truly blessed to have shared the kind of friendship they did.
They seemed sympatico in so many ways; in their optimism, their high energy level, their "can do" attitude and their formidable love and support for their families.

Your mom always had a smile on her face and I have to believe that somewhere out there the card game now continues !

With love and sympathy,
Nancy, Max and Abby Weinberg
