My deepest sympathy goes
out to all the family. Your dad, Leon, of blessed memory along with
the late Howard Rosenblatt, were instrumental in getting me involved
in the Men's Club at Beth El. They both along with your mom, will
always be special to me and hold special places in my heart.
Dear Jill and Cindy, Your mom was
a very special lady and I shall keep her in my heart. Take care of each

Dear Jill and Cindy:
We were saddened to hear of you mom's death.( Your deceased Uncle
Buzzy's daughter contacted us to inform us. ) She was our cousin, and
even though we had not seen each other for years, we remained in touch.
We haven't seen you two since you were little girls, and lived in
Columbia, Md. Please be aware that our thoughts and prayers are with you
at this sad time.

Dear Jill and Cindy,
My heart and prayers have been with you since getting the phone call early
yesterday. Your mom and I shared our lives since 1965 as sisters-in-law and
later as friends. She was a special person and will be missed by all those
who knew her. Your memories will become more precious to you as time goes
on. Just remember she isn't really gone. I love you girls and your
daughters. Please take care of each other. Marilyn.

I will miss you dearly, my
friend. You were one of the most interesting people I have met. I loved your
stories of places you've been and things you've done. I know you loved your
family more than anything. I hope they know what they are going to miss not
having you around. Cindy and Rebecca loved you so much. If there is anything
I can do for you two, please let me know. Your mom / mommom was a great lady
and will be missed very much. Love you
