I have childhood memories of your mother (and dad and you kids) from Congregation Sons of Israel. Your mother was the most welcoming and loving person -- as was your dad! Their love, joy, and pride in each of you was always absolutely shining. What beautiful people. I am so sorry for your loss.

I loved talking to your mother at Epoch, telling her I was Esther's friend. Then i would say 'Esther my shvesta' and she would smile from ear to ear! How she loved her family.
