But know that Auntie Ruthie won’t be forgotten. She will be remembered with lots of love. And today, I may even drink a coke in her memory. She loved those didn’t she?

Esther and Jonathan Pollard - 14 days ago

If you remember Laval Ouest, Plage Laval, Cozy Corner, the “big house” and the“little house”, the “stinky man” (aka the “can man”), Popsicles split in half to share, 5-cent Fudgesicles, 10- cent Big Ten ice creams, Mae West and Joe Louis cakes, the daily trek down to the beach shlepping folding chairs, big black inner tubes and and a large soft-sided lunch bag with soggy sandwiches for lunch (salmon, tuna and chopped egg), then you also remember Auntie Ruthie and her unique way of reminding all of us when summer was over and it was time to return to the city and begin another school year. Year in year out, at the end of the summer, Auntie Ruthie would invite us all to the “little house” when she and her kids returned from their back-to-school shopping spree. As we marveled over their wonderful purchases, Auntie Ruthie would sing her very own (terribly off-key) rendition of “The Party’s Over!” Summer never ended until Auntie Ruthie sang. My husband, Jonathan, has been regaled over the years with all of the stories from the olden days. He joins me in extending our heartiest condolences to Auntie Sylvia and Uncle Sammy, to cousins Sandra, Marilyn and Jerold and to the extended Caron and Shaffer families. May G-d comfort you amongst the mourners of Zion and Yerushalyim. May you be spared further sorrow. Sincerely, Esther and Jonathan Pollard

Gloria Pascal - 14 days ago

Dear Marilyn, Today you wrote me the following; I cannot say it better than you did. “There’s a lot of family coming in. All the grandchildren from everywhere! We are truly blessed - everyone was close with my mom”. Such a beautiful text. You captured your mom’s life and legacy! Dedicated children and grandchildren and everyone coming to share their love and memories. I really don’t think we can ask for more - a long life, lots of love given and received in return! Your mom was so sweet whenever we visited her at Levtov and she kept on inviting me to come visit again anytime. You made sure you were there for her to the best of your ability. I remember her last two birthdays at Levtov when you brought in birthday cake for all and everyone sang happy birthday to her! She was so happy and proud. Many cherished memories! My condolences to the entire family! Sincerely, Gloria
