    Dear Barry and Cheryl, I just read about your Mother’s passing and I wanted to express my condolences. I remember you all from years ago – we lived on Warrington St – and our parents were friendly through Sachett St School PTA. My parents were Nat and Sally Rosenfeld. I remember your Mother very fondly and I am sorry for your loss. Sincerely, Marsha (Rosenfeld) Kirshenbaum

    Dear Barry and Reba,

    We wish to extend our deepest condolences to you and your family. Your mother was a dear friend of my mother’s (Diana Cooper) in the Greens at Leisure World and we so enjoyed her company. She was really a true friend and kept in touch even when Mom could no longer keep up with the crowd. Thelma was a dear lady and we have fond memories of her. Our hearts go out to you. Sincerely, Doris
