Send Condolence

I want to express my deep, heartfelt sympathy to the family of Richard B, Kantrowitz. Our friendship dates back to Taylor Allderdice High School. I attended the wedding of Richard and Roz at the Beth Shalom Synagogue and I have fond memories of his Father Henry and Mother Pearl and brother, Ken. We attended reserve meetings of the 911th Troop Carrier Group during the 1960s. Richard and I worked together as members of Three Rivers Lodge B\\\'nai B\\\'rith, attended conventions at the Concord Hotel in New York, and many Council Meetings at the B\\\'nai B\\\'rith office on Forbes Street!
