To the family of Wenny Amar, Please accept a deeply held expression of sympathy on the loss of your loved one. We remember how gracious she was each and every time we had occasion to meet in person. We will never forget Solomon (z"l) her beloved husband who worked as a controller at my company, Silver Foods Inc, many years ago. Both Wenny and Solomon will remain in our memory for all time to come. May their memory ever be for blessing. Each of them and both of them are part of our own life's history which we shall always remember and cherish.

I had the pleasure and honour of meeting Wenny and having the opportunity of engaging in very interesting conversations in Spanish with her.

Dear Jacques and family, ברוך דיין אמת Please accept our deepest sympathies on the loss of your dear mother and may the wonderful memories help give you strength during this difficult time.  הַמָּקוֹם יְנַחֵם אֶתְכֶם בְּתוֹךְ שְׁאַר אֲבֵלֵי צִיּוֹן וִירוּשָׁלַיִם


ANDRE GIDE LA SYMPHONIE PASTORALE -Il ne faut pas chercher à m'en faire accroire, voyez-vous. D'abord parce que ca serait très lâche de chercher à tromper une aveugle....Et puis parce que ca ne prendrait pas, ajouta-t-elle en riant. Dites moi, pasteur, vous n'êtes pas malhereux, n'est-ce pas? Je portai sa main à mes lèvres, comme pour lui faire sentir sans le lui avouer que partie de mon bonheur venait d'elle, tout en répondant: -Non, Gertrude, non, je ne suis pas malheureux. Comment serai-je malheureux ? (From Mme Amar's Class, 1980).


My deepest condoleances to the entire Family of Wenny Amar. Mme Amar was my teacher 43 years ago in Wagar High School. I remember her great kindness, patience, diligence and hard work in teaching the great authors of the past as Andre Gide in Symphonie Pastorale, as well as the Quebec authors as Gratien Gélinas. She was a multi-tasker and took her job very seriously. The fact I remember what she taught 43 years ago, you will easily understand the quality of her teaching and deep insight in every book she taught. She was a wonderful person and I always saw her as a mother more then a teacher. Mme Amar was well respected and liked by all those who knew her. Mme Amar, je vous aime!! Avec tous mes sentiments les plus profondes et chalereuses. MAYER SASSON, MONTREAL.
