To Jeff, Steven, David and families--your mom was like a second mom to me growing up, considering all the time I spent in your house. Both your parents were exceptionally kind and understanding, and always good humoured, which was not easy when one remembers how, shall we say, "offbeat" we were in high school. My memories of Mrs. Spodek will always be fond, as I'm sure yours will as well.
