So sorry to hear this and so grateful to Evy and Phil for all the kindness they showed me as a young boy walking wide-eyed into their magic store. I cherish their friendship now as I did then. The magic in what they built wasn't the tricks on the walls - it was them.

Mischa Granik - 23 days ago

Dear Phil. Thelma joins me in expressing our condolences to you and your family on the passing of Evelyn .

Jonathan Levey - 23 days ago

I am so heartbroken. Evy has left us much too soon. Her spirit remains with us, of course, but our time and talks together in her and Phil’s store and over the phone, over so many years, will be sorely and sadly missed —as will her smile, her laugh, her brightness, her interest in us and her family, and her good-natured humour. Our thoughts are with Phil and with Evy, and with Julie, and Michael and Brian, and Ronna, and with Evy’s beloved grandchildren during this very difficult time. May they find some small measure of comfort knowing this. Love, Jonathan & Monique

Michel Deslauriers - 23 days ago

Robin and Herb Levine - 24 days ago

Dear Phil, Ronna, Michael, Brian, Julie and your families, We are so sorry to hear of the loss of Evy. I spent so many years growing up in your homes, especially Grand Lac Long. They are some of my favourite memories - we had so much fun and a lot of laughs. Evy sure had a great laugh! We are sure that you have many wonderful times to look back on and we hope that they bring you comfort at this sad time. Love, Robin and Herb

Dear Phil and family; I opened the paper today and read of Evys passing and my heart is broken for all of you at this sad time. We really haven't touched base as often as we did while neighbors on Hartland when our families were young and growing and the times were wonderful and carefree. Not too long ago I had the pleasure of meeting you in IG A and Evy gave me one of her warm smiles and a big hug, (pre virus days) In that 20 minute sojourn we somehow caught up and shared some of our truths while you patiently stood by. Now I send you my blessings for good health , a long life and know that my prayers are with you. sheela 7 marty

Joe Schwarcz - 26 days ago

Dear Phil, Julie, Brian, Michael and Ronna Such shocking news...Evy was a wonderful person; what a privilege to have know her and Phil for some forty years. I remember the very first time when I came to the basement on Kent Street to buy some magic and she showed me the needle through the balloon. Of course it didn't burst. Sadly, eventually all of our balloons do burst, but the memories they contain float around forever. It was always such a pleasure to come to the shop....so many happy moments there. Evy was just magical!

Rita Pomade - 26 days ago

Emily Shore - 26 days ago

Dear Phil, I am truly so so very sorry to hear this news.

May the beautiful memories you have of Evy comfort you and your family during this difficult time. Sending much strength and love to all. Emily

We extend our sincere condolences and may the memory of the good times last forever.

Shainy Haim - 26 days ago

Jules (and family)..there are simply no words that can capture the magnitude of this deepest sorrow. No gesture that will make it feel ok... No action that can erase this pain. Only time passing, precious memories, and the motivation of her knowing smile watching over you, pushing you to carry on. You made (and continue to make) your mom so proud, Jules. Her gentle intelligence and clever wit live on in your soul and infuse your essence. You are a better human being because of her and the unconditional love and support she has always shown you. Now you are that person for Jacob and Samantha. You were all so blessed to have her. My heart breaks thinking of how much this devastating loss hurts you all. May you heal in the knowledge that Evy had a beautiful life full of happiness, pride and joyful naches from all of you. I will never forget her. Such a poised and lovely lady. That is how I will always remember her... Baruch Dayan Emet.

Mel Solman - 26 days ago

Dear Phil, I'm so sorry to read of your terrible loss. My deepest condolences to your entire family. Both you and Evy were so tremendously kind to my mother Jean over the years, and your special visits, especially for her 89th birthday at Maimonides, is something I will never forget. Staying in touch, being warm and caring is the sign of truly special cousins--as she and you were without doubt. Evy was a great lady, and it was always wonderful to speak with her by phone and share my latest genealogical findings to stretch the Cooke/Kruk family knowledge back to the late 1700s. I just now happened to see the obituary notice online because I was viewing details regarding my old friend Doris Schwartz from AJCS who passed away on Thursday at 104. What a shock to see Evy's name listed. I would like to think the words of the old spiritual "Swing Low, Sweet Chariot" applies -- "a band of angels coming for to carry her home." Love from all my family, Mel Solman

Debbie Okun Shaikin - 26 days ago
