Debra Grill-Miller - 1 day ago

Dear Gila, Allan ,Amy & Family, Lorne and I are deeply saddened by the sudden loss of your dad Moti, He was so special. Always warm, friendly and inviting. Your friends were his friends and that is how we felt being around him. The fond childhood camp memories wouldn’t be complete without making a huge hall from Farkas’s chateau, There was nothing better, How he went out of his way for our family, we could never forget the kindness. For Mrs. Grill he would do anything, including a drop off in Chomedey as if he just happened to be in the area! That was Mr. Farkas , everything was with pleasure. The stories are endless. We hope that you find some source of comfort by hearing the beautiful tributes made to a man so deserving. May his memory be a blessing. Our thoughts are with you. Debra & Lorne Miller

Dear Avi and Gila, I was saddened to learn of your father's passing. After not having seen him for about 40 years, I was stunned when he (and Avi) came to my father's shiva. I had no idea who he was. When he introduced himself we gave each other a big hug. So much had happened since I had last seen him. And little did I realize that the tall, handsome man standing behind him was my childhood friend, Avi! It was definitely one of the most cherished moments of that week of shiva for our family. Wow, so many memories flooding my mind. Playing ball with Avi, your grilling dinner in the backyard ..... getting my "Expos jacket" from Lad and Lassie. I also learned at the shiva that your father and my father were born 2 days apart. May all his good deeds and his warm smile bring you comfort. He was truly a beautiful person. I remember how sorry my parents (and I) were when your family moved to Cote St Luc. Warmest regards. May Hashem comfort the family in your time of loss. Yitzchak

Dear Gila, Allan and Families, I am just one of so many who have shared thoughts of your exceptional Dad. He was indeed an icon of the community, outfitting a generation of kids to perfection with his personal touch , knowing everyone's needs while making everyone happy. Coming into his store was a treat because shopping for my boys was no easy task and Mr. Farkas was the one person who just knew how to capture their interest and make their shopping experience a pleasurable one...mine of course as well. He was a true "men sch " loved by so many. I offer you my heartfelt condolences and may all those treasured memories of him remain in your hearts forever. Mary Aronovitch

Dear Allan , Gila and Family. I send my deepest condolences on the loss of " Farkas Baci" as I called him . It was my honor to be seated next to him for many years in the Rabbi's Sukkah .

He was our adopted Baci and his charm and sincerity won over all who came into his world. Allan, I watched your devotion and respect for him with great admiration over the years . You were an exemplary son and he was so proud of you . May his memory be a comfort to you all . John and Elissa Kovac

Rhonda Kerzner - 12 days ago

Dear Gila, Avi and Moti's family, Reading my sister, Gail's post, and many others, I get transported right back to Lad and Lassie. Before there was such a thing as business training seminars, your dad instinctively knew how to make everyone feel special and just what they needed. I remember also, whenever I couldn't decide between 2 items, he managed to arrange for me to get both! Through his friendship with my parents, I was lucky to have him as part of many happy childhood memories. He loved life, his family and people. His bear hugs and big smile will live on. Sending love and my deepest condolences, Rhonda Kerzner

I used to see him sometimes at The MTC. You both went beyond despite the toll it took on you. My deepest sympathy to you and all the families. Beverly

Freddy and Joannie - 12 days ago

Dear Allan and Gila... So many memories of your father, many of which I shared with him over the years. His memory at the time was sharp as a tack. We fondly recalled and laughed together remembering my coming to Lad and Lassie with one of my sons who needed 'chubby' pants. Moti's store was the only one that sold boys pants with a partial elastic waist. He made my son feel like a million dollars. Camp stuff, labels, sweatshirts, shirts - the only place to shop for camp and shmooze with Moti. And then he came to the MTC. It didn't take long for people to see that his soul had found a place and everyone in his orbit was the beneficiary. We often hear that people who live until 90 or 95 or older have had a long life... It's time. You get the drift. While they certainly lived many years, such people never die. They may not be here physically any longer, but their souls live on in us, our children and grandchildren and everyone who had the privilege of knowing them. And no one is ever too old to die. May the memories you have sustain you and may you be comforted among the mourners of Zion and Jerusalem.

Gail Kerzner - 12 days ago

Dear Gila, Avi and families, Remembering Moti brings back so many fond memories. We used to all pile into the store and spend hours there. Even as a toddler I remember standing on the front counter so he could check how it looked .Clothes would be strewn everywhere and he would be frantically bringing out new styles for us to see.. All the while Isaac and him would be talking business. There were the times he and Dad would go to Vegas...his eyes lit up everytime he would tell me about their escapades. He was a warm and loving man who took pleasure in making others happy. I am sure Isaac will be smiling as he sees his old dear friend again. He will be greatly missed.

Every time I pass the store's location I will think fondly of him. Hoping good memories sustain you at this tough time.

Lea Bergman Nemes - 12 days ago

Dear Farkas Family, Being an only child, my shopping trips to Lad and Lassie were legend. Mr Farkas would greet my mother and me with smiles and service. As I grew up, I was sent on my own, and your dad would supply me with my daily and camp wardrobe, in every colour . Both he and your uncle were the loveliest store owners, where shopping felt like a community hang out. I am always reminded of the store whenever I pass the block on Victoria. I am happy to read of his long life and legacy. My deepest sympathies to all of you on your profound loss during this difficult time. Lea Bergman Nemes

My late father used to take me to Lad and Lassie every time I needed new clothes and for a young child, clothes shopping is usually not on the list of favourite activities but “Mr. Farkas” always made it such a pleasant experience. I loved the store but more importantly, it was the personal experience, with the greatest respect shown for all clients, even an 8 year old. He was a wonderful man and I sincerely hope that all the heart warming memories will help carry you through these very difficult times.

dear Gila and Alan.......your dear father's passing conjures up so many memories for me......both very good...and otherwise......We began shopping at Lad + Lassie from the start......I clearly remember when your lovely, hard working mother was doing the alterations and helping build their business together.....then suddenly, she died.....it was so sad for all of you...Gila, you were still young, but you stepped up to the plate for your dad....and especially for your little brother alan.,who needed you... I also recall when your uncle died.....All this devastated Muti....but his strength and excellent disposition carried him forward......All young..[.at the time..]. parents found ourselves heading to L+L.....for our children's needs......Muti automatically knew what we needed....especially at camp time.......he knew everyone's name...and their tastes......GOD BLESS YOUR SOUL DEAR MAN.......YOU ARE REMEMBERED WITH LOVE......REST EASY.... my deepest sympathy, Gila + Alan and grandchildren..Love, Sheila

Allan, I am truly sorry to hear about the passing of Moti. He was a very special part of our lives, for both myself and of course my sister Sharon for many years. I will always remember how well 'Abba' took care of our mother Marilyn (you did as well) - and the good times we had, especially the time I spent with him when I visited them in Florida - and the Sabbath dinners at your home. My sincere condolences to you, Gila and the family. XO
