    May the memories of our loved ones remain for a blessing.

  • Rita Kranson Williams

    Marcia--I just discovered this morning that beloved Leon had joined his Libbie and my daddy in Heaven. There are no words to offer and nothing can make his loss any easier. Please know that mother and I are sending you love. I am hopeful that sometime soon, perhaps you will be in the New Orleans area, and we can see one another and reminisce about our spectacular, loving, amazing parents. Please email me your phone number so that I can call and speak with you. Again, so very sorry. May his memory be for a blessing.

    Very sorry to hear of your loss. The pain of losing a loved one never completely leaves but I pray you find comfort in the one desiring to comfort us (Isaiah 66:13). May God, the father of tender mercies prove to be near during this difficult time. Agape.

    Mr. Abramson was an inspiration of how to live a meaningful life to the fullest. His presence will be missed at synagogue and I know how much his family will miss him. My deepest sympathy to you all.

  • Doris & Marty Goldstein

    We are currently out of town and most saddened to read of the death of Mr. Abramson. We just saw him in shul Last Shabbat where he seemed fine. He was as such an inspiration.....a ShabbatRegular with a strong voice to recite the blessings in honor of Hashem. He certainly lived a life of purpose and meaning who will be missed not only by his family but also his synagogue family.
