    Dear Bonnie, Amy, and Hal, You know your mom was a very important person to me throughout my life. She was more like a mother figure to me. Whether she was babysitting me as a young child, inspiring me as to what career path I should be pursuing, or how she liked my hairdo... She would always be outspoken! I loved her & will miss her greatly. She very much loved her nephews David, Joseph, and Adam, & David & Amanda's little Noah. She was always loving to my husband & his Ft. Lauderdale family as well. She always made an impression on every life she touched. May G-d grant you peace and may she rest in peace & love. Lynn & Jose & Family

    Sukie was such a delight to know. She was a great friend to my mom and I always enjoyed being around her. She had so much energy and a natural curiosity to know anything and everything about anything and everything. Whenever she had something to say, my ears were wide open because I knew I was about to learn something from a very strong and wise woman. May the memories that you have keep your hearts warm and comfort you during the difficult days ahead. Heartfelt condolences
