    Dear Bender Family,
    I’m so sorry for your loss. Mr.Bender was a gentleman I remember from my youth. Mrs.Bender was very nice also. I remember them from the store on Rolfe st when they owned it. It was the former Kay’s Delicatessen. I remember his work at The Miriam as my doctors are on staff there. As sad as I am for his loss, I’m happy he is back with his Mrs. God bless you all.
