Eunice Palayew - 13 days ago

Dear Weigensberg family ....all of Riva’s progeny whom she adored. Your matriarch was a powerhouse; a pillar of strength to several generations of your family. She was also Auntie Riva to many of us outside the family. I was witness to her strength through the loss of her beloved nieces. I saw her total joy when she spoke of her children, grandchildren & great-grandchildren. I was also the recipient of her many little notes & poems which were sent at both happy & not -so -happy times . They were always a delight to receive. As you mourn your great loss please know that there are so many of us who will always remember Auntie Riva with great affection. Eunice

Dear Mardy, Bonnie, and your family, My deepest condolences to your clan as there are many. Over the years the two of you certainly went out of your way to ensure Riva had all her needs well taken care of. Riva was certainly the Patriarch of the family, as was beautifully illustrated by the eulogy. Imagine the work she had bringing up 4 boys and making it all the way to 97, only to be taken by COVID -19. It was because of how you took care of her. You should be proud!

Karen (Beder) and John Reynolds - 14 days ago

It is with great sadness that we send these thoughts to you. We always enjoyed our annual visits with Auntie Riva, sometimes accompanied by my daughter Jane, her husband Ben and my two granddaughters. We were always received with joy and she took great pleasure in providing something to eat. We had many good phone conversations over the years and she always ended with "I love you" and sent her love to all our family, including my son Mark, whom she had never met. She appreciated our calls and I was so thankful that I was able to speak to her on her 97th birthday. We are deeply feeling the loss of a loving, caring aunt who will never be forgotten. We know that your whole family will be supportive during this time. You have such wonderful memories of your mother, which will always be with you.

a remarkable person has left us...extraordinarily wise, loving, compassionate..so many exceptional qualities and a family legacy of mutual love and support. My first memory of Riva was 78 years ago, with many visits and phone conversations over the decades..when Riva left a message, I always knew that a reply was my first priority of the day. I doubt that words could truly provide consolation to you but memories and your family closeness will do so I am sure.

Dear Weigensberg Family...I have more memories of Reva's generation than of the current . Reva was a true lady; she always greeted me and we spoke about the past, although not recently Going to her house in Chomedey, and seeing her treasures, one of which she gave me, and which I still have. To give you a familial connection, my Mother was one of the Mays, daughter of Jacob and Miriam Weigensberg. Going through the list of brothers-and sister-inlaws was like a walk in memories.Names evoked memories from 60 or more years ago. I also remember working with Eddy on a new and different family tree, that never was finished. As I said before, a true lady in every sense of the word .May the family know of no further sorrows.

Dear Weigensberg family. Sending our sincere condolences at this very difficult time. Our deepest sympathy. I will miss my beloved Riva immensely. She was a very dear special friend to my late mother Jennie Rappaport. I considered Riva my second mother who was always there for me. I enjoyed speaking with Riva - my last words at the end of each conversation was “I love you” and she wholeheartedly replied and “I love you too”. She always had a positive attitude - never complained. RIP beautiful Riva - love you and will cherish your friendship forever. Al & Doris
