Dear Mrs. Fructer,
It has been years since I was at Union Hospital but I will never forget you or Mr. Fructer. He was such a good and kind man. May he rest now in the arms of Jesus.

Marilyn: Danny's Texas cousins have watched him on CNN for the December 7 Remembrance. How well I remember him as a youngster as he was the hero returning home from the War. I wish to extend to you and your sons my deepest sympathy. Cousin Rosalie

Hi Marilyn,
So glad I phoned Danny last month. We spoke for an half hour and we both enjoyed visiting with one another. His mind was perfect and we told jokes and stories to one another. Wishing the best to you, Philip and Gary, and family.
With love, Teresa and Myron (Silbermans from Delray Beach, FL)
