Send Condolence

Dear Sissie, Amy, Jimmy and family, I was so very saddened to learn about your beloved father and brother. So sweet, kind and loving. He lit up when he spoke about his \"Jackie,\" his children, and his grandchildren. That included his special sister. He was a joy to know, and truly a mensch. I was told services were on Monday; however, after reading the only paper I get, which is Sunday, I recognized it was today! I am so sorry I missed saying \"good-by.\" Please know you are in my thoughts and prayers. Thinking of you as I gently wrap my arms around your hearts. Wishing you gentle day, and loving warm memories. Love, Laverne
