Isabel, Toby, Melanie and Jonathan,

Sander Mussman was a very special human being. When you think of the word mentsch; he was the true meaning of that word. He treated me and everybody that knew him with kindness and dignity. He will be sorely missed, but never forgotten.

May his memory be for blessing

Most sincerely
