They say "nothing is forever"but the separation and loss goes right to the heart.
I will miss our almost daily email trivia.Why is it the people you love live far away. I still have wonderful memories of the week my wife and I spent with Irv
and Bea and played bridge around the clock. My sympathy goes out to all the
"Matis" family, Irvs' passing is a tragic loss to all who knew him.

Bea and Irv were our friends for many years and they both will be missed. We enjoyed our numerous dates for the movies and dinner. It was Irv who recruited Ed Goldberg and I 20 years ago for volunteer service with the Palm Beach County State attorney's Office. May Irv enjoy a well-deserved eternal peace.
