Dearest Sema,Carl Susan Sandor and family
When Henry came into our lives he was like a brother to us.
We saw each other often even though we were miles apart!
We shared many occasions ,the whole gang ,birthdays and
graduations. every opportunity to be to be together.
We were so very fortunate for the last 10 years to be to get her for 4 months in Florida.
We miss him terribly.

Ron and I send our condolences to Sema and the entire Goldstein Family. We shall always remember the good times we shared with Sema and Henry at the Singer/Hallett Sukka on the beautiful holiday of Sukkot. The best part of the festive meal was the ending i.e. dessert. We couldn't wait to partake of Sema's famous Strudel!

So many of my childhood memories include Auntie Sema and Uncle Henry, and my cousins. We always lived close enough to drive, and we visited back and forth frequently. We all piled in the car and drove to Connecticut or Mass, and I even have memories of visiting them in Brooklyn, Avenue Z, and checking out the bomb shelters, an oddity for Canadian kids! When they were coming to us, we all watched the clock and the door, waiting excitedly to see them! For the last 10 or so years, we would see them in Florida, and it was always wonderful to reconnect. We would have warm family gatherings, even when Uncle Henry was ill. Uncle Henry will be sorely missed by me, and everyone else who knew him.
