Send Condolence

To the Simon Family: My deepest condolences. Cookie and Willy were dear friends for many years. I now reside in Aventura, Florida (2016) but when still in Pittsburgh, my wife, Soralie and I visited Cookie often at Charles Morris. Her memory will be a blessing to all who knew and loved her.

What fun to read about pieces of Aunt Cookie's very full life that I did not know! Especially wowed to read that she was a dance instructor for Arthur Murray. Know that she was always thought of fondly, along with the sweet, darkly funny, and caring Uncle Billy. Love the photo you include here.....beautiful. Not surprised that she was the most popular girl at Allderdice! Condolences and warm thoughts to you all from Baltimore. Love, Paula
