Dear ‘Aunty’ Bertha, Morris and Abby and Family, I’m so sorry to hear this news and the passing of Victor. I’m deeply sorry for your loss. You have my heartfelt and warm condolences. I appreciated that Victor had a good-natured sweet, loving, and gentle soul with a warm laugh and a kind sense of humor. He was a great friend to my parents and I’m indebted to the wealth of good, fun memory he brought to their lives, to my family’s, and the gentle and caring sensitivity he brought to mine. I have this wonderfully vivid happy memory of Victor exiting to his garden or already in action watering his lawn and always stopping to wave in friendliness and with a kind smile to me as a youngster playing in my front yard across the street. His cheerful, sincere hello and kind presence added lots of meaningful warmth to my childhood days. Victor was a sweet and real gentleman in the truest sense to anyone on any day. I also vividly recall his love of singing to Om Kalthum at my Bat Mitzvah “chaldri” and his enjoyment of all the music through to the early morning hours. To watch him respond to the melody and words helped me more deeply appreciate the profound sentiment and loving kindliness of a song. The music raptured his face and he made it sentient that something in his heart transported to a sweet, rich, sacred, special, loving, beautifully eternal and understanding space. May his peaceful good be for a blessing and may his strong, good love in you be an inexhaustible source of comfort, appreciation, and pride. I wish you and all in your family comfort, strength, ease, and much love at this difficult time.

Dear Bertha, With great sorrow I received the news of the passing of our beloved Victor. I knew him from Lord Reading Yacht Club when almost all our Iraqui Jewish Community were members there. Our children played Tennis, and learned sailing, our men played Bagamon we played Bridge and enjoyed the pool and relaxing by the lake. Of course we enjoyed the dining room and all the parties. Alas, we are loosing all that generation one by one. Victor was loved by everyone with his warm loving approach to everyone. We enjoyed several parties at their house socially and through the sisterhood. He was very special. My deep condolences to Bertha and the whole family.
