Dear Kathy and family, I was heartbroken to hear this news when my mother told me. We feel like family since the Hoffmans have been in our lives since before we were born and I've known the Bleckmans since grade school. May you be comforted among the mourners of Zion and Jerusalem and may Stuart's name always be for a blessing.
