I have great memories of cousin Moishe. Always so nice at family get togethers. He and Ruthie so hospitable to Joel and me when we first were married. They invited us to their home for dinner and shared many memories. I know my mom and dad loved spending time with Moishe and Ruthie.

Also, I saw a wonderful service today. Moishe was a great guy.

Nothing but the greatest memories of Uncle Moishe. His kindness, generosity and humor knew no bounds. I remember as a kid hanging up on him when he called and asked if this was the Tickle residence. I actually knew it was him but just said sorry wrong number and hung up.

Another great memory I have is of some of my kid birthday parties, where Uncle Moishe was enamored of one or two of my new toys and I had a hard time getting it back from him till he went home. The "Frustration Ball" is one thing that comes to mind.

I admired his ability to power nap in a room full of people. I also admired his ability to keep himself in excellent shape till his nineties. You never saw him pile up his plate too high.

All the memories are positive. Morrie and my Dad had a great relationship. They complemented each other for the years that they were in business together. I sit here remembering Morrie flying in for my Dad's funeral 16 years ago and appearing at the cemetery. We were all very much touched. We regret not being able to support your family to the same degree at this time. Our thoughts go out to you.
