Send Condolence

Dearest Lois, Bob called me last night with the saddest news. Marcia was my closest friends in Pittsburgh and we have stayed in touch throughout our lives -- always with enormous love . I vividly remember our walking each other home after school when were very little.. Together we were in Room 8-- the workshop for "mentally gifted" children. If you recall, my brother Larry was in your class in school. He liked and admired you so much. I know how close you were to Marcia and that this is the most enormous loss. My heart goes out to you, Lois. Sending you my love and admiration. Marcia and I spoke of you in every phone call. I am so very sorry. Rheda

Very sorry about Marcia’s death. She was a big part of my life as a child. I recall visiting Larry and Marcia in Philadelphia as a child when Larry was still in the navy. They took me on 2 naval ships ( an aircraft carrier and a cruiser). It was a very memorable trip for a young child ( probably 7 or 8 yo). Please accept my condolences.
