The one who never forgets your birthday. Or your kids' birthdays. Who lights up when she sees you. Who knows how to really listen. Who has a wicked sense of humor. Who knows the best restaurants. Who gives of herself unconditionally. For so many of us, we didn't wish we had that friend, we had that friend with Courtney Sackin. Cori died September 25, 2017 in Atlanta, GA and our friend will be forever missed, forever remembered. She was born in Los Angeles, CA to Stevie and Stanley Sackin. After the Sackin family relocated to Atlanta, GA, Cori graduated from Riverwood High School and the University of Georgia as a member of Sigma Delta Tau sorority. Cori dedicated her career to helping others, first in Alzheimer care, then in elder care, and most recently as an intake coordinator and capacity building specialist at Care and Counseling Center of Georgia. To Cori, family meant both the family she was born to and her family of friends. To list all those she leaves behind would be impossible, her hug and reach was so vast. An on-line guest book is available at www.edressler.com. The family requests donations to the Care and Counseling Center of Georgia, www.cccgeorgia.org/cori-sackin; Chaya Mushka Children's House, www.chayamushka.org/elementarycori-sackin; or to the charity of one’s choice. A memorial service will be held on her birthday, December 5, 2017 in Atlanta, with other celebrations of life to be scheduled. Details to be announced.

[dec_shiva_add1] => 3286 Northside Parkway, Atlanta, GA 30327 [dec_shiva_add2] => [dec_obituary] => Michael H. “Mike” Mescon passed away peacefully Sunday, November 12, 2017. He was 86. Michael H. Mescon, who the Wall Street Journal described as the Pied Piper of Private Enterprise, was first and foremost a family man. He married his teenage sweetheart Enid 65 years ago, immediately after they both graduated from the University of Miami. They originally met at a Bnai Brith Youth Convention when they were both 12. Mike and Enid lived in the same house in Sandy Springs for almost 50 years. Mike was the son of Florence and Abe Mescon and while born in Toronto, Canada, grew up in Charleston, SC, and graduated Miami Beach High School in FL. He is predeceased by a brother Lou, a sister Helen, and his daughter Nance. Mike and Enid have two sons, Tim (Lauren) in Amsterdam, the Netherlands, and Jed (Phyllis) in Chattanooga, TN. They have seven grandchildren living across the U.S. from California to Georgia. After graduating the University of Miami and earning a Master’s Degree, Mike and Enid moved to NYC, where Mike completed his Ph.D. in Human Relations at New York University at age 23. In New York, Mike pursued his lifelong love of weightlifting under the famous Sig Klein in Manhattan and Mike became a fitness fanatic before fitness became fashionable. Over the decades of his professional career, he would recommend gyms and fitness centers globally for road-weary travelers. Following graduation for NYU, Mike immediately enlisted in the U.S. Army and spent two years as a PFC at Ft. Jackson, SC. Mike maintained a close and proud link with the U.S. military for his entire life, including very active engagement with Veterans of the Vietnam War. Mike joined what was then the Georgia State College of Business Administration in 1956 and eventually became Chair of the Department of Management, the world’s first Holder of the Bernard B. and Eugenia Ramsey Chair of Private Enterprise (1963), and retired as Dean of the Robinson College of Business in 1990. Mike loved Georgia State, and as an investment partner in the group that created Technology Park over 40 years ago, gave his shares to Georgia State. Mike continued to teach a graduate course with Professor Harvey Newman in the Andrew Young School at Georgia State for many years. One of Mike’s great stories involved the late Richard Rich, Chairman of Rich’s Department Stores. In the late 1950s, when Mike was a young assistant professor at Georgia State, and was also working as a consultant for Rich’s, Dick Rich challenged Michael by asserting he “knew nothing about business.” Mike conferred with Enid and immediately took a three-year leave from Georgia State and went to work full-time for Rich’s, managing what was the Stewart Avenue Center. Mike claimed it was the single best professional experience of his career. He received honorary degrees from The Citadel, where he held a Chaired Professorship, and the College of Charleston. Mike loved downtown Atlanta and for many years was active in the Y, the Commerce Club, the Atlanta Rotary, and served in key leadership roles for many non-profits, including the American Heart Association, Northside Hospital, the American Red Cross, and many, many others. Mike was a distinguished academic, book author, and champion of private enterprise. His co-authored Introduction to Business Test, Business Today, was the world’s top-selling text and was translated in many languages, including Russian. Mescon founded the Georgia Council for Economic Education and the Association for Private Enterprise Education (APEE). For 20 years, he was contributing editor and co-authored a monthly management column for Delta Air Lines SKY Magazine, as well a regular columnist for years for the Atlanta Business Chronicle. Some of the most popular articles were included in a book, Showing Up for Work & Other Keys to Business Success, for which he received the Georgia Author of the Year Award from the Council of Authors and Journalist. Mike was a global consultant and founded the Mescon Group in the late 1960s with colleagues Carl Bramlett and Don Jewell. The Mescon Group became one of the largest academically based organizational design and business process engineering firms in the U.S., specializing in plant restructuring in the pulp and paper industry, and was eventually acquired in the early 2000’s by Aprio. Mike was also a proud co-owner of Carson-Schoenfeld VW/Fiat/Porsche in Marietta, part of his lifelong love for cars. Over the years, Mike served as a director of a number of publicly held corporations and served as a keynote speaker/consultant to companies across the globe. He was always in demand for corporate engagements and was an amazing speaker and thought-leader impacting many organizations around the world. To this day, so very many quote from Mike Mescon speeches including: “Show up, on time, dressed to play, you’ll never have to break a sweat.” He and Enid traveled to every continent and loved their time together and with family and friends. His greatest love was teaching young people at Georgia State University. In lieu of flowers, memorial donations may be made to the Michael Mescon Endowment Fund at Georgia State University, PO Box 2668, Atlanta, GA 30301, www.gsu.edu/giving.

[dec_burial_location] => [dec_burial_location_one_time] => [dec_shiva_information] => [dec_shiva_add1] => [dec_shiva_add2] => [dec_obituary] => Virginia Mary Cunningham (nee Warnke) passed away peacefully in Atlanta, GA on Sunday Nov 12, 2017, in the presence of loving family and caregivers at the Fountainview Center community. Virginia (Ginny) was born in Toledo, OH on March 24, 1934 to Harold & Gladys Warnke. She attended St Ursula Girls Academy and Mary Manse College, where she met her life long (to this very day) friends, and then later, met William F. (Bill) Cunningham. Bill & Ginny were married on Dec 29, 1956 in Toledo, and then moved to the Chicago area, where Bill’s career was ascendant. While raising two sons, she attended Purdue University and obtained her Masters in English and started teaching. This was during a time when married women with young children were not supposed to pursue careers. She then earned certification in teaching Remedial Reading (and later Reading Recovery), becoming part of the first generation of teachers specializing in helping at-risk students. She was a popular teacher and earned accolades for her service in the public schools on the South Side of Chicago. Once Bill and Ginny became empty nesters, they moved back to Toledo, where Ginny continued mentoring children on their reading skills and reconnecting with her family. It was there she was at her happiest, being surrounded by her parents, siblings, cousins, friends and nieces & nephews. Bill & Ginny moved one last time to Houston, TX, to be close to their son, Chris, and his family. She continued her teaching there, while Bill eased into semi-retirement in the city where he lived in the 1950’s. She finished her teaching career at the prestigious St John’s Academy, where she was adored by staff & students alike. After her retirement, she stayed busy by volunteering at her church, St Vincent de Paul, and at the Houston Rodeo. And playing bridge; lots of bridge. She survived some very serious health issues in 2015 and bounced back almost as good as ever. She continued to live in her Bellaire, TX home, under her own terms thru 2016. Unfortunately, she suffered a serious stroke in Feb 2017 that became her greatest challenge. Her sons relocated her to Atlanta in Oct 2017, where she could receive the level of care she needed. She was preceded in death by her parents, Harold & Gladys; her loving husband, Bill; her oldest brother, Robert, and his wife, Beverly. She is survived by her two sons: Kevin Cunningham of Atlanta GA (with wife, Jenice & granddaughter, Maury) and Chris Cunningham of Houston, TX (with wife Lisa, grandsons: Kyle & Christopher and granddaughter, Carley); her brother, Richard (with wife Anita) and by a multitude of cousins, nieces, nephews, lifelong friends and all the children whose lives she touched by her commitment to teaching those less fortunate. The family would like to also thank all the wonderful and caring staff at The Concierge (Houston) and Fountainview Center & Weinstein Hospice (Atlanta) for the comfort and care they gave Ginny in her final days. Sign online guest book at www.edressler.com. The family will be conducting memorial services in Toledo and Houston within the next few weeks. Her final place of rest will be in Houston, next to Bill. In lieu of flowers, the family asks that you consider a contribution to Weinstein Hospice, 3150 Howell Mill Rd, Atlanta GA 30327 in memory of Virginia Cunningham and all that they did for her.

NW Atlanta, GA 30327 [dec_shiva_add2] => [dec_obituary] => COHEN, Sheldon Bradley, beloved husband, father, grandfather, brother, physician and friend, passed away on November 9, 2017. Sheldon was a psychiatrist who practiced for over 60 years, an avid runner of marathons and lowlier distances, an indomitable writer of letters to the editor, a member of the 1,000 mile swim club at the Lucky Street Y, an early and ardent advocate of conservation and sustainability, a tireless foe of smoking, an exhaustive rememberer and recounter of bad jokes, a compeller of people to pick up litter, turn off lights, close refrigerator doors, and not keep cars running, a lover of books and music, and a man who saw wonder in so much. Sheldon B. Cohen was born in Savannah, GA on March 26, 1928 to Sara and Benjamin Cohen. Raised in Augusta, GA, Sheldon liked to tell of his early entrepreneurial bent, selling soft drinks to construction workers and at ball games when he was six. He later attended Richmond Academy, Augusta Junior College, Vanderbilt, and the Medical College of Georgia, from which he graduated at the age of 23, before working at the Menninger Clinic in Topeka. While serving in the Navy in the summer of 1954, Sheldon met a woman with a broken radio at Virginia Beach and told this soon-to-be college senior, Dorothy Davidson, that he could fix it. He couldn’t, but less than a year later, she married him anyway, beginning what would become a 55-year love affair filled with family, friends, travel, service, ongoing debates about what temperature to keep the house, and holding hands. After a brief stay in New Orleans, where he was a resident at Charity Hospital and where their sons, Steve and Bruce, were born, Dot and Sheldon moved to Atlanta. There, in 1961, they had their daughter Andrea and moved into a house they built together, turning it into a home filled with love, art, family, friends, music, holiday meals and celebrations, Tuesday morning Bible study, and the occasional Wednesday evening tree crashing through the roof. Sheldon practiced psychiatry for nearly 60 years in Atlanta and was deeply committed to his patients. Over the years, he taught at Georgia Baptist and Emory Medical School. He was devoted to public service, especially through organizations related to medicine, health, conservation, and sustainability. He was a member of the American Psychiatric Association, the Atlanta Medical Association, the Southern Medical Association, the American Medical Association, and a former editor of the American Journal of Clinical Hypnosis. He was also a longtime avid supporter of Southface Energy Institute, and so many other organizations. Sheldon was pre-deceased by his loving bride of 54 years, Dorothy “Dot” Cohen, of blessed memory; and his younger brother, Adrian “Bunny.” In addition to his children, he leaves his daughter-in-law, Jennifer; and his much beloved grandchildren: Ari, Naomi, and Simon.

He was 81. Beloved husband for 53 years of Lynda S. Kramer, who he met and married in their hometown of Chicago; loving father to Staci D. Kramer (Edward Kohn) of University City, Mo.; Edward M. Kramer (Edith Kramer) of Maceio, Brazil; Nancy K. Joffre (Steven Joffre) of Atlanta; and S William Kramer (Julie Kramer) of Dunwoody, Ga.; adoring grandfather of Sydney Joffre, Erik Kramer, Haley Joffre, Alana Kramer and Aidan Kramer; “Uncle Marshall” to the children of many close friends; cherished relative and friend. Mr. Kramer lived in Memphis, University City, Atlanta, Cherry Hill, N.J., and Boynton Beach as he advanced in the shoe industry. He eventually launched his own women’s fashion shoe company, including the Trivia, Mikala and Alexa Perri labels, often commuting from Florida to Brazil where the shoes and handbags sold in major department stores were made. Mr. Kramer’s salesmanship - and his trademark snazzy ties - were on full display when he pitched his creations on HSN. He moved back to Atlanta in 2016 to be closer to family. A philanthropist and fundraiser, Mr. Kramer was dedicated to the Two Ten Footwear Foundation and honored with the organization’s A.A. Bloom Award in 1992. He was active in the Memphis Jewish Federation, leading a mission to Israel with his wife. He was a lifelong fan of the Chicago White Sox. He also enjoyed cards, golf, Las Vegas, Frank Sinatra and collecting shoe memorabilia. He was preceded in death by his wife, his parents Simon Kramer and Marion (Sachar) Kramer Silverman, his sister Faith and his stepfather Leo Silverman.

She was a driven, loving, giving, energetic, and considerate person. Tonia’s grandchildren and great-grandchildren were the main purpose of her life. She was intelligent, generous, and a hard working woman who loved life, people, and her family. She forever preserved the importance of keeping a Jewish home, imparting these values on her family. Tonia is survived by her two children, Zelik Ulman and Liza Gilzenrat, and their spouses LeeAnn Ulman and Michal Gilzenrat; her five grandchildren, Monica Schulman and husband Jeremy, Nicole Gilzenrat and husband Philip Criscione, Alanna Ulman, Natalie Ulman, and Brandon Ulman; her five great-grandchildren Jordan, Josh, Ariella, and Zach Schulman and Alyssa Ulman, and her many friends who loved her so much. She will be truly missed and dearly remembered by her family, but the void of her passing will never be filled. Sign the online guestbook at http://dresslerjewishfunerals.com/.

[dec_shiva_add1] => 1765 Garraux Place, Atlanta, GA 30327 [dec_shiva_add2] => [dec_obituary] => Scott Selig 1970-2017 “The greatest gift a man possesses is the ability to work hard at something that is worth working hard for.” -Theodore Roosevelt Scott Selig found many opportunities worthy of his hard work during his lifetime. He served as Executive Vice President of Selig Enterprises and the driving force and President of the recently launched Selig Development, an arm of the nearly 100 year-old family held real estate company. Scott was focusing on the future and growth of the business, for his family, his colleagues and his community. During his 17 year tenure at Selig, Scott’s hard work, dedication, and leadership have been noted and recognized throughout the business and civic community. Scott has served on the Atlanta Commercial Board of Realtors, Midtown Alliance, Buckhead Community Improvement District, The Council for Quality Growth, City of Atlanta Workforce Development and the Buckhead Coalition. Additionally, Scott chaired the City of Atlanta Technical Advisory Committee and has been an active member of YPO Southern 7 and the Grid Iron Society of the University of Georgia. Scott’s impact on Atlanta and the entire region has been recognized numerous times through such awards as: The State of Georgia Outstanding Citizen Recognition Award, Atlanta Business Chronicle’s “40 under 40 to Watch”, Atlanta Commercial Realtors Presidents Award, and in 2016 their Realtor of the Year Award. Most recently the Atlanta Business Chronicle recognized Selig as a Most Admired CEO. Earlier this year, the American Lung Association honored Scott as a Lung Force Hero, in appreciation of his work as fundraiser and advocate for the research and treatment of lung cancer, the disease that led to his death on October 27, 2017. Prior to his professional and civic life, Scott graduated from the Westminster Schools, class of 1988. At the University of Arizona, Selig received an undergraduate degree in Business Administration and served as Chapter president of Zeta Beta Tau. In 1995, Selig earned an MBA from the University of Georgia, Terry College of Business. Over the past week, as family and friends gathered at his home to say their good-byes and to reminisce about their son, brother, father, friend, uncle, mentor and leader, one recurring theme seemed to dominate. Scott’s life was a mosaic of great proportion. Colorful pieces of personality, character, intuition, intellect, clothing, and an abundance of inspiration were woven together, over an adventure filled and often trailblazing 47 years. Selig left a profound mark on those whose lives he touched directly and indirectly. For the more than 3000 people who connected through the power of social networking, billboards, t-shirts, wristbands, videos and dedication to the ScottStrong movement that his illness ignited, his strength, courage and spirit will live on. It is no coincidence that as Scott learned of and shared his diagnosis of stage four lung cancer in October of 2016, the force of his determination to ‘die with cancer and not from cancer’ would inspire loved ones and strangers alike, to rally around a man, who this time was the underdog. No coincidence, because it was Scott who was there for so many and who was accepting of all, regardless of their station in life. Through his early and visionary involvement and leadership at the Ron Clark Academy, his greatest communal passion, and during his board service at Camp Twin Lakes and at the Jewish Federation of Greater Atlanta, Scott engaged with great conviction, an empathetic heart, quiet generosity and genuine humility. There is no underestimating Scott’s resolve to do what he could to make the lives of others, often strangers, better. Countless friends and a large family cherished Scott and loved him for his unique spirit, his independence and his authenticity. Their lives have been and will continue to be illuminated by the rich, colorful life that Scott Selig lived. Scott’s family includes his loving sons, Cooper and Sam and their mother Amy Selig; his parents, Steve and Linda Selig and Janet Selig and Jeff Bernstein; siblings: Mindy and Dave Shoulberg, Blake and Stephanie Selig, Michael Shenk, Stacey and David Fisher; Mara and Justin Berman; and Bret Bernstein; nieces and nephews, Carly, Jordan, Casey, McKenzie, Ansley, Parker, Zachary, Alison, Lindsay, Molly, Aaron, Justin, Ella, Avery, Davis, Max and Parker; special friend, Samantha Wexler.

Everything was done as I asked and even all the things I didn't ask for or about. David was wonderful to me and all my family. Other than the weather, it all went better than planned. Thank you, too, for arranging the tree planting through Batesville Casket. What a thoughtful gesture. I was very touched. Thank you so very much. Please excuse this belated note but I had been overwhelmed by my new responsibilities and by the outpouring of support from the community. Thank you again for everything. Sincerely,”

Listening to the beautiful service afterwards has helped our family to find some comfort. Thank you again for your impeccable compassion and care during this difficult time.”

“Thank you, David. Let me start by saying how great all of you were through this process. I have a motto that describes how I serve my own clients in my profession - "do it right, do it right now, and do it with a tone and tenor that says 'thank you for the privilege of service.'" Everyone at Dressler's with whom we interacted since [the death] exudes that same attitude, effort, and professionalism. I speak for al in the family when I say we are very grateful.”

“Dear David and all of the people at Dressler's, My whole family and I want to tell you how much we appreciate your services from the day we came in to discuss potential funeral plans through the difficult and emotional funeral itself. You took care of every part of the planning, were there when we needed you and were attentive to every aspect of the funeral itself. Throughout the whole process, we felt as if you cared both about the handling of our Mother and were also able to help alleviate our emotions by the combination of professionalism and empathy. Again, thank you for all you have done to help us. Sincerely,”

You care and concern are greatly appreciated. Thank you very much. Sincerely,”
