Send Condolence

My parents were friends with your parents for many years. They spent time together in Florida, as well. My mom is living in a facility now, but she was very sad to hear of your mom’s passing. Sending prayers and healing to your family. May her memory be a blessing.

I just saw this obituary and wanted to say how sorry I am for your loss. Marjorie was someone I knew from a very young age since she was the daughter of Phillip Cohen who later in life married my grandmother Samee. While I lost track of her over the years I still have memories of her, Eastmont and your family and just wanted to send my condolences.
