Dear Barbara, Jeff, Ilene, Carson, Kevin, and all family

The funeral service for Sig was very enlightening. I learned a lot from all the tributes, especially from Jeff, Adam, and the hospital chaplain. Having been "estranged" from you for many years, I know now that all of you can support one another during the course of events following the passing of a loved one. And I just want to add a couple of tidbits about Sig, that even Barbara may not recall hearing before.

I knew Sig before all of you. We were in Hebrew class together in DC. His mother was a fixture in the synagogue, too; can you imagine she had the need to protect him, because back then, he was not as strong as he grew up to be.

Later on, Sig was in the same high school fraternity pledge class as I. We had to collect money for muscular dystrophy, via raffles,
and I recall that he collected more money than any other pledge.

That's it, just a couple of footnotes to his long life.

Be well, all of you!

Allan (Okin, Barbara's first cousin)
