To the entire Weinstein family: My sincere sympathy to each of you as you work through the grief process. Your mother sounds like a very special lady. I had the opportunity to meet her on one occasion. This was when Karen brought her to the Sunday brunch, as a part of our reunion. Karen, what a beautiful job you did with the sentiments you expressed regarding your mother. I know this was not easy; however, you did it beautifully. I was very impressed with your brother-in-law, Rabbi Steven Sager. Such a loving testimony in his remarks about Mrs. Weinstein. Karen, it was good to see you again this year, just sorry it was under the circumstances.
May God comfort you and give you strength as you recall good memories.
