  • XMC.PL-Master

    Hello Members, I wonder how to reach the consciousness of the Russians and make them realize that every day in Ukraine RUSSIAN SOLDIERS DIE and military equipment is being destroyed on a mass scale. Why destroy and demolish when you can build and create a new, better world. WAR is suffering, crying, sadness and death, do you have any ideas to convince Russians that Vladimir Putin should retire, bask in the sun somewhere in warm countries and end this bloody conflict in Europe. It is a great idea to select random companies from Russia on Google business cards and add opinions about anti-war content and make people in the country aware that Putin is doing wrong. Please take a moment to select a random company on the Google map and add your opinion about anti-war content. It is also worth informing Russians about the possibility of VPN connections because Russia is blocking a lot of content on the Internet and sowing sinister propaganda by not giving people access to real information Peace be with you! Thank you Tomasz Jerzy Micha?owski Poland

  • Sherry Carasik

  • Sandy and Dave Abrams

  • “Judy Lynn” Bernhardt Glatzer

    Dear Marshall, Sheldon, Susan & Family, To say Our Families have a “long history” Is an understatement! Your Wonderful parents rented one side of their duplex to my family in the 1960’s on Arlington Ave. We were next-door neighbors when Lois & Leonard were newlyweds! My parents, Hannah & Morris & I were devastated when Leonard tragically, passed away. On a Happier note, as a pre-teen, I was your first baby-sitter, Marshall & Sheldon. As the years passed, our parents stayed in touch & Sweet, Lois was at our home—after Larry & I had our 1st Baby, Rebecca. “Ironic” Marshall, So many years later, you & Rebecca would meet-up. Your entire Family is So generous & loving & I am deeply Saddened reading about dear, Lois’ passing. I am Thinking about all of you & May G-d, be with you at this Most Difficult time. Sweet & Beautiful Memories—May Lois, Rest In Peace. She will be resting, with Sandra & Leonard. Love, Judy & Rebecca Lois & Leonard always called me “Judy Lynn” besides my folks, they were the only friends, who did—-Smile.

  • Amy B Kahn

    I'm very sorry. I will keep you in my thoughts and prayers.
