I am sorry to hear about your loss. During this time of great sadness, I hope that the family find comfort from James 4:8. It says, "Draw close to God, and he will draw close to you." Along with family and friends, may you'll also look to God for comfort.

Jerry, Judy and Cary, and your respective families
Anna was so special, and I feel blessed and privileged to have known her as a friend. I learned so much from her and she will continue to be my mentor, as she helped me to keep perspective, not pass judgment, importance of being kind to others and cherishing the journey every day.

Jerry, my condolences on the loss of your mother. I didn't realize that you were the son of a Hungarian Holocaust survivor, as is my good friend Steve Varady. I hope that you are otherwise doing well. Richard Rampell (
