    Linda: So sorry to read about your mom. She was always gracious to me in my obnoxious teenage years. We’re going out of state today for a week, but I wanted to pass along my deep condolences. The Koslows played a big role in my early life.

    May I express my sincere sympathy.
    My late husband and I lived for a short time next door at Hoffman Ave. They were wonderful neighbors and so devoted to each other. I visited them often and had great conversations. I will have fond memories of those times.

    My condolences to Franklin and Linda as well as all family members. Mrs. Koslow had a great personality. She was always
    with a smile when coming to the Pharmacy to visit Harold. As
    an employee in the early 60′s , Harriett would always converse with whoever was working at that time. Most of us were teenagers
    and in High School in that period. We all had respect for the Koslow Family as they gave us all a chance to work with the public
    in preparation for our future. May God Bless You.
