Dear Pearl & Family,l I was so shocked and saddened at the news of Mortie's passing! Please accept my sincerest condolences at this time! May you be spared any further sorrow.

David Suliteanu - 10 days ago

Pearl and family, my sincerest condolences for your loss. I had the fortune of meeting Mort through the Montreal Camera Club, often sitting next to him, and once had the pleasure of organizing with him a presentation on humour at the club. Suffice it to say we had a great time working together on the project, given the subject matter and our fun-loving dispositions. We also got together to try to figure out how to use Mort’s slide scanner, but we unfortunately never went further than that. Between your sculpting, Pearl, and Mort’s photography, creativity was certainly not lacking in the Levy household. Sadly, David Suliteanu
