My Aunt Paula was one of the kindest sweetest and funniest women you’ll ever meet. She met us with a smile and never lacked for a big hug. She had more energy than any woman of her generation. My fondest memories of her were visiting her at her chocolate store in The Bronx when I was a young girl. And of course seeing her at all of our family simchahs. At age 95 I remember her on a chair at my daughter’s wedding taking pictures! When I say energy I mean energy! Rest in peace my wonderful are truly loved! Lois

One of my favorite memories was after mom and dad bought a new fridge so you and i moved into the box outside and made it our home. You helped me decorate the box and drag all my babies and toys to live with us in our new box home....

My mom was 101 and 9 months old when she took her final breaths and passed quietly at rest in her bed. A blessing to have had her for such a long time ends with her journey into the mystery beyond. Expressing these words amidst my tears isn't intended to bring you to tears but to smile for the joy of her life.

My memories of Mom are many, but for now, I'll share her love of a good story. Whether made up or actual, her knack for happy endings always taught me how to see the best in everything. Her fearless optimism became my shield of armor that only allows the light to enter and spare me of the darkness.

The lessons never stopped , just like her love for all her family with plenty of room to spare for friends and strangers.

Mom, you are dearly missed right now and always will be remembered forever and ever.
