My late mother, Shirley Pfefer, met Felice through the breast cancer survivor support group at/of Hope & Cope back in the mid to late 1990s. While they initially connected through their experience with cancer and their treatments, it was their social work backgrounds that brought them closer. My mother felt she had found an ally in your momwhen it came to navigating and negotiating the medical establishment and mindset. I got to know Felice through their connection, and found her to be very caring, feisty/spirited, opinionated, insightful, affable and strong-willed. A straight shooter. Oh, and your mother was funny and laughed easily and heartily, and let me tell you, it was positively contagious. A real New Yorker or New York gal is also how i would describe her . I do recall that i was in your home on Marcil for a brunch shortly after my mother died in 2002, and i was taken by the diversity of characters who had gathered there and their stories There was lots of stimulating conversation, good food and good cheer that afternoon. It was real heymish/homey, and i got to see that your mom had a real bonded immediate family, and a wonderful network of friends and colleagues. As i'm reminiscing, i think to myself that it's too bad that we didn't keep in touch over the years, that i lost the connection with your mom. Jewish guilt aside, i offer my sincere condolences to all of you, and especially to you her children. I see that you've now lost both parents, which i can relate to and understand. While i didn't really know your dad, having only met him a couple of times, your mom left a very favourable impression upon me. May your memories of your mom continue to inspire and guide you in your lives, and to laugh through the tears and your sorrow(s). PS: My mother grew up on Marcil, but further up from where your parents house was. Anyhow, i think it was meant to be that they should meet and connect as they did in their lives. They were both guteh neshumehs, and may they both now rest in peace. Amen.

To the Heller Family I have fond memories of Felice and Ron when they volunteered at Hope & Cope. They were so kind and dedicated to the patients. They will be sadly missed.

Dear Eugene, Simon, and Jenny (p.t.r.s.m.) I'm very sorry to learn of your mom's passing. I knew her as a neighbor, friend, student, and colleague, and remember most the many, many times we all spent together when you and Doron were young. I will miss her,--even though I haven't seen her in decades! My love to you and wish you continuing loving memories .
