Dear Alan and the entire Klag family, I remember fondly when we were all much younger and living on McAlear, visiting at your house and your Dad was always in his chair in the living room reading and he would look up and engage me on the issues of the day.

Marianne Constantine - 11 days ago

To the Klag family: My late husband Morty Constantine and Leo enjoyed many lively discussions in the exercise room of the Cummings Centre, as well they recommended to each other and exchanged cantorial music and operatic discs . Leo never complained about his fragile strength but was obviously not too happy about his failing eyesight ,yet he came every week happy to do some exercise and cheerfully chat . Very kindly he called our home to ask about my husband and continued to call now and then to see how I was was getting on. The last time I spoke to Leo was just about two weeks ago. I shall miss his presence and will not forget his kindness, his sincere interest in my children and grand children , his intelligent observations . A real gentleman a true"mensch" touched our lives.

Familie Wittneben - 11 days ago

Dear Suzanne, Malvina and Andrew with family, we can't tell you how sad we are hearing that Leo died. We will miss his future telephone calls on Christmas, what he did for many years and he called me his "Volksgenosse". He kept always his unbelievable humor inspite of his difficult and painfull life. He used to have sayings in German full of wit and esprit. Unforgettable is our common visit to Berlin couple of years ago when we learned a lot of Jewish life and history and the worst time in Germany's past. Family Wittneben, Germany

Raizel Candib - 12 days ago

Dear Malvina, Alan and families,I remember your father very fondly both as a parent when I was a teacher at Wagar High School and as a good friend of Helen and Moshe Katz z”l. He shared many of his wartime experiences with me and especially the irony of being interned as an enemy alien in Quebec when trying to escape from the Nazis. He was a highly intelligent man. May his good name be a blessing. Raizel Candib
