To the family, Florence and Jerry were close friends of my parents: Belle and Irving Cohen. They would visit my parents often in L'Esterel. When my mother got Alzheimer's, Florence was one of the few people who continued to visit her over the year's. I would frequently bump into Florence at the Jewish. She was always warm and always had the nicest things to say. May her memory be a blessing
