Dear Gerald and Susan and family - We are saddened to hear of the loss of your mother, Gerald. She is part of a great generation on whose shoulders we all stand. We hope that good memories sustain you in these sad times, and comfort you in the days ahead.
I've found in the loss of my own parents that they are still with me in so many ways, and I hope it is the same for you.
With our love, Jeff and Diana (Nishita) Cheifetz
