Barbara Baron - 13 days ago

Dear Reissa and Family, We were so sorry to hear that your dear mother had passed. She was such a nice lady. My mother enjoyed seeing her at the Waldorf. Sending you our most sincerest sympathies. Warmly, Barbara Blackman and Edith Blackman

Joyce Kaplan - 16 days ago

Dear Judy and family, My deepest condolences on your loss. As so many have mentioned here, Lyla's warmth radiated from her welcoming smile. I always looked forward to seeing her at the Waldorf when I visited my mother there. Often I had the pleasure of playing bridge with her in games my mother arranged and no matter how poorly I played, Lyla always made some very nice comment. It is so painful to lose our mother, and especially hard during these strange Covid times when we cannot celebrate her as deserved or get the comfort from others that a traditional shiva brings. My thoughts are with Lyla's family. I know she had left you with inspiration and special memories, Joyce
