Your father was a delight to be around. I loved his stories even though I heard the same ones many times. His sense of humor was similar to mine so I could really appreciate his jokes. I'll never forget the first time we met him. His greeting was " welcome to the street of the living dead". He was a warm and caring person. We enjoyed going to dinner with your parents. We will miss their presence on our street and their friendship.

We have known Joel for so many years and have been joined in making a living for our families. It has been a good experience. We are glad that he celebrated his 85th birthday and that he could be there for Merle at her passing. May they both Rest In Peace and may the family be comforted by their memories . Love, ilana and marc
