Linda Beck - 24 days ago

Dear Henry, I am truly saddened about the passing of your beloved mother, which I just found out about today. Sophie was a true gem of a person, always full of life, vivaciousness, and kindness. I spoke to her not too long ago, and I am glad that I did. I will always remember the good friendship your parents had with mine for so many years and all the memorable times they shared together both in Montreal and in Florida. I am so happy that I regularly kept in touch with your mother and saw her the last time she was in Florida, as well as when I was in Montreal in 2019. I will always remember her for the exceptional spirited warm person that she was. Our deepest condolences go out to you, Anne, Oliver and Samuel. May her memory be a blessing. Linda & Mark Beck (Florida)

Dear Henry, My sincere condolences on the loss of your mother. I remember meeting your lovely parents at a parent teacher interview. They were such a beautiful couple. Your father always greeted me warmly when I would come into the Brown Derby. You were their greatest love. I hope that the wonderful memories you have of your mother will be of some comfort during this difficult period. From one of your teachers of many years ago. Florence Chaikelson Mitmaker

Jackie Eidelberg - 28 days ago

My dear Henry. My condolences to you, Anne and the boys. My sweetest memory is in Florida. Kelly and I were walking on the boardwalk behind your mother and my mother. Our fathers may have been behind us. I saw our mothers arm-in-arm as two Polish school girls might have walked or skipped together before the war, talking, and gossiping and laughing. It was just beautiful! I will miss your mother as I do, my own mother. Jackie

Dear Henry and family. We are so very sorry to hear that your beloved mom passed away. We remember her for her radiant smile and her always being caring and gracious to everyone. May all the warm memories guide you through this difficult time and may this poem by Richard Fife give you comfort and strength … “Those who live no more, whom we loved, echo still within our thoughts, our words, our hearts. And what they did and who they were becomes a part of all we are, forever.”

Bob Herman - 28 days ago

Henry, sorry to hear the passing of your mother. I still remember her from way back when we were 5 year old kids playing in the back yard in Parkex in the late 50's and her calling you up from the back balcony for supper or some trip to Chicago or Vienna.

Sarah and Danny Samra - 28 days ago

Dear Henry, Your mom and dad were a beautiful, loving couple. We recall meeting all of you in Monte Carlo, then going to your parents’ place for a smoked meat sandwich and pizza on the Italian Riviera. Back in Montreal, Henry and Sophie came to our place for dinner. They were such fun. Youthful, full of stories, exchanging loving looks with each other. Romeo and Juliette, had they survived and lived to an older age. I adored them. The last time I saw Sophie she was attending a lecture in McGill given by one of your poli sci profs. She was inordinately proud of you. I have some photos of them together. I cherish these memories. Hope you are well. Sophie and Sam to me, are one name, bound together in love and twinkling eyes, . I hope they are at peace now, together again. May you know no more sorrow. Sarah
