Send Condolence

We met 40+ years ago in israel, and even though we lived many miles apart, the bond between us remained strong. Laurel and I kept in touch on email, and we shared so much about our children and our lives. She was integrity, joy, love, all wrapped into a beautiful life. And even though we didn't speak that often,we were always able to pick up where we left off. Laurel touched my life in a very big way. Please know that Alan and I are thinking of you.
