I have a wonderful friend in Ina and Morrie’s daughter, Vicki. I am grateful to Morrie and Ina for a daughter they raised with the capacity for kindness and love. Their kindness extended itself unto me, as well. My condolences to you all.

Morrie started out as our accountant…always happy and smiling. He was always kind, and there when we needed him.
Later we found out that Aviva went to high school with Ina, which brought them to us as friends as well. Living in different states made our getting together difficult, but they are and always will be in our hearts.
We are so sorry for your loss Ina. Lots of love to you and to your children!

I was saddened to hear of Morrie passing. I had talked to him every week for a while and sense in our last conversation that he was not doing well. Morrie was my friend, tennis partner and he was a wonderful accountant to me and the 24 years in my business. I’ll miss Morrie a lot.
He truly was a mench.

Dear Ina,

Sorry for your loss. I always enjoyed playing bridge and Tennis with Morrie. He was certainly a formidable opponent.

Dear Ina and family,
Hermine and I are shocked and saddened by Morrie's passing and join to offer our condolences at this most difficult time. Morrie and I go back decades - as a longtime friend, neighbor, fellow member of NSS BethEl and tennis partner. Ah! Tennis partner! There was rarely a time he would turn down an invitation to play and we spent hours trying to better our games despite the reluctance of our bodies to do so. May his memory be for a blessing and may he organize and enjoy many heavenly matches.
