My heart aches with losing such a wonderful friend. Norty introduced me to the love of my life Jerry. We spent many simchas, dinners, theatre and of course talking on the telephone. She was so proud of her family. Stay strong and remember the wonderful wife, mother, grandmother and friend we all loved.
