Dear Irving, Sandra, Rena, Joel, Larry, Randi, Brigette & all the family members - My deepest, most heartfelt condolences on your very sad loss. I met my special friends, The Raskins, when I was in my late twenties & all my fond memories are still with me today. Essar did have a unique way of telling a joke and he had an audience who always wanted more. I still laugh about one or two I can remember. It's such an ache knowing he is gone. I wish you all strength & courage in your grief, and hope all your fond, happy memories of Essar bring comfort to you. My thoughts are with youe Love Joyce when I was in my thirties

michael white - 20 days ago

To the entire Raskin family, It's many years since we were neighbors on Norwalk. We can never forget what Essar did for us. We went to Toronto for a bar mitzvah & when we arrived I realized that I forgot the dress clothes for all 4 of us in the front hall. Essar to the rescue. He brought our clothes to the airport & put it on a plane & at 1:00 am I picked up our clothes & we went to Shul the next morning properly dressed. Thank you Essar. Rest in peace. Our sincere condolences to all the family. Mitchell, Steven, Lee & Michael White.

to all of Essar's loved ones, Joseph and I are sorry to hear about Essar. Just about every happy occasion, celebration and life-event growing up include memories of him and your family.

I will never forget and be forever grateful to him (and Rena) for ultimately taking Grandma Becky in during the ice storm. My heart is with you all today, Melanie
