    I cannot express the sadness I felt when I received the news
    from Rabbi Perlman’s notice.
    I remember How Jack was so supportive when my Dad passed
    in 1979 and I attended services daily where Jack more often than not led services . I Held Jack in high esteem for the wonderful man he was and when He passed I became very close to Rhoda. She was the epitome of a classy Lady and I will miss her.

    Rhoda was initially my patient but over the years we developed a true and loving friendship that I am grateful for and loved her for. We enjoyed taking the time to tell old stories of the past and found a common bond between us when we realized that we had the same auquaintances and lifestyles. I am thankful and blessed to have shared a friendship with her that will endure in my heart by the memory of her. We bonded as women and death will not separate the love we shared. My heartfelt condolences to Fred, Arthur , Fran , Walter,Edith and all the dear grandchildren , and great grandchild . Death does not separate love, ever. In peace, Kathleen B. Mc Carthy and family -Providence,RI
