    Dear Winkler Family,
    As you know, your parents and mine were the best of friends for so many years. They enjoyed each other’s company, discussions and laughing together. I have so many memories of them coming over to the house in Greenville and talking about their children and grandchildren. We were so lucky to have such warm, caring vibrant parents who enjoyed life to the very end. Sincerest condolences, David Katz
