Minna (née Friedland) Aspler and her beloved husband Moe were lifelong friends to our family – from the days of Warsaw Betar with Minna and my father in the 1930s, to the reunion in Montreal after the war, subsequent decades of good times with my parents and sister in Montreal, and lovely visits with my mother to Minna's apartment in the later years. I'll always remember Minna and Moe with joy – their kind and friendly esprit and mentschlechkeit, good humour, and Minna's keen memory and poignant stories about her heroic life. Minna and Moe, I miss you forever. To Carl, Fanya, and the entire family: you are in our thoughts and hearts – ir zolt nisht visn mer foon keyn tsar (you should be spared of any further sorrow). Love, Eliezer Trepman

Dear Carl and Fanya, Minna & Moe Aspler - Bunny & Joshua Klein - were both cousins and close companions, and a warm part of my childhood memories. Our heartfelt condolences on the loss of Minna.

Rachel Alkallay - 20 days ago

Dear Carl, Fanya and Families, So sorry to hear of your beloved mother Minna Aspler's z'l passing. She was a strong, optimistic woman throughout her life, and life certainly gave her challenges. I had the privilege of interviewing her for the Shoah Foundation, and what a story she had! And those green eyes that looked at you and always knew the truth...she was a survivor. In past years she and I would bump into each other around the area; unfortunately I hadn't seen her for several years. She will always be remembered by all who ever had the privilege of meeting her. May the many happy memories you have of her comfort you during these difficult days. May you and your family be spared any further sorrow. Rachel

Maxine and Stephen Sanders - 21 days ago

Dear Fanya and Carl and families, We are so sorry for the loss of your wonderful mother. Though I used to see her at many Hadassah WIZO functions through the years, the picture you posted brought back memories of my childhood when our parents z’l were good friends and you lived just down the street from us. I was fascinated to hear her story as I never knew that about her. Stephen joins me in offering you our heartfelt condolences. Fondly, Maxine ( Elman ) Sanders

As Andrew Toeman also posted, my parents and Minna and Moe were lifetime friends. Moe was our insurance agent and our families spent many wonderful times together including weekends at our cottage in Huntington. A life to be celebrated.

Donna Kuzmarov - 22 days ago

Dear Carl and Fanya and families, my heartfelt sympathies on the loss of dear Minna. Our families go back over 70years, Moe and my father Oscar were first friends, then Minna and Ann joined them.The circle of friends was special, so often getting together Sat. nights for intellectual and artistic pursuits. With the loss of Moe much too soon, the friendship continued with Minna and Ann well into these later years, my mother passing away just six months earlier. My whole family admired the stories of courage and strength of Minna. I have found myself watching the videos and reading the stories, in awe of the resilience and bravery she stood for in such dire circumstances. I always appreciated times with our mothers and marvelled at the zest for living and learning. May you cherish your memories forever. Irwin and Ralph and Eve and Ben join me in w pressing our heartfelt sympathies. Love, Donna

Sorry to hear of the loss of Minna. Although Minna was a relative of mine on my mother's side (Pauline Seidman-Goldman), I did not know her story. What a fantastic woman that you should be very proud of.
