    Howie and Peter,
    My deepest sympathies to you both. Your mom was such a kind, lovely person. I remember her fondly from our growing up on Betsy Williams Drive and then over the years when we would bump into each other or hearing my mom, Sylvia, talk about her and their getting together long after your mom moved from the street. I remember how she, Shirley and my mom hung out together.
    Zelda was such a wonderful person; I hope all of your memories will help during this time.
