Dear Gesser family, My deepest condolences on Dora's passing. We had a fine tradition of Friday phone calls to wish Shabbat Shalom. Dora always said 'I was waiting for your call'. Dora and my late father Sam had a beautiful and deep friendship for 8 years. Dora told me many times how special my father was to her. They were partners. May her memory be a blessing to us all.

To the Gesser Family, I was saddened to hear of the loss of your dear mother. Dora and Nat were cherished friends of my parents, Roz and Moishe Sinuk. I remember Dora as warm, kind, funny and intellectual. Also, speaking as possibly her worst piano student, I can add patient. May you be comforted by your memories together and may her memory be a blessing.
