Dear Richard, Larry, and Bill,
I was so sorry to learn of your mom's passing, and we send our condolences from Jerusalem.
I have fond memories of "Inky", as I used to call her. She was a good, gentle, and caring lady.
I'll visit her grave on my periodic visits to the Ohav Zedek Cemetery, and say a prayer for her. May her soul be bound up in eternal life. May HaShem comfort you among the other mourners of Zion and Jerusalem. Love, Cousin Bob
