David Slapack - 18 days ago

Dear Levine Family, It was with great sadness that I learned of your Mother’s passing. Although we have not been in touch for many decades, there are a few touchpoints that bring back many memories. My mother Rose Levine Slapack and your Father were cousins and I know that my parents enjoyed being in your parent’s company on many occasions. If you recall, we also had common friends with the Bernstein’s who lived on Hingston Ave. and finally, we grew up with your family in the Shaare Zedek community. My deepest sympathies. May her memory be for a blessing. David Slapack
