Roz, I am sorry to hear of Sonny's passing. I have so many wonderful memories of visiting Montreal with mom and staying with you. I can picture your house!

Dear Rosaline, Marcy, Bonnie and the family, It was heartbreaking to hear of Eddy's passing so suddenly. Eddy was always determined to enjoy life to its fullest and I believe he fulfilled that goal, right to the end, even while on dialysis. The twinkle in his eyes and his infectious smile revealed his inner self. We will remember him fondly. We want to extend our most sincere condolences to the family. May his memory and your memories of him offer you strength in these difficult times. Sylvio, Ruth, David and Dhani

Our deepest condolences on the loss of Eddie. I will always cherish the close ties our families had those many years ago especially the close friendship our our parents. I remember fondly the winter holidays in the laurentians and the antics Eddie used to do with hopping on the back of someones skis trying to ski downhill as a passenger. He always called me handsome harry and I will remember him fondly . He must be now setting up a card game with my parents hoping that someone up there has a 'pishka'

Nina Cohen Myers - 26 days ago

Dear Ros, Bonnie, Marcy and families, It fills me with extreme sadness to learn of Eddy’s passing - a beloved member of the Elias-Brodkin-Cohen ‘family’. Very fond and special memories of togetherness go back decades - winter vacations in the Laurentians, the weekly card games, simchas. And always Eddy was there with his sunny smile, humour and obvious enjoyment when interacting, not only with his kids, but with the rest of us other kids as well. May your wonderful memories of Eddy bring you comfort at the very sad time and in years to come.

Bill Noraian - 27 days ago

Roz and Eddy were dear friends of my late wife Anne and me in Florida for over forty years. We went out for dinner many times during their stay at the Royal Coast. I will miss Eddy in Florida. We spent a lot of time together. I saw his children grow up, get married, and have children. My son Kirk enjoyed them very much when he visited Florida. I will deeply miss Eddy.

Gertie Brodkin - 27 days ago

Dear Roz, Bonnie, Marcy and family. It was with a sense of extreme loss, one of a family member when I learned of Eddy’s passing. Our relationship goes back to before your marriage, and our friendship continued over the many years. My heart goes out to all of you. May you find comfort, at this terrible time, with thoughts of the many good times. All my love, Gertie

Elliott Brodkin & Rena Lipsey - 27 days ago

Dear Roz, Bonnie, Marcy and families. We’re very sorry to learn of Eddie’s passing. All through my childhood our family’s lives were so intertwined, together with the Cohen’s. Our parents were as close as siblings, spending most recreational time together. So close we called Roz & Eddie “aunt and uncle”. And those card games! These are my enduring memories from growing up. They will always bring a smile to my face. Although it’s been many years since we’ve been in each other’s company, we will always think of your family with great fondness. We wish you strength and peace during this time of sadness.

Bradley Brodkin - 27 days ago

Auntie Roslyn (you’ll always be that to me), Bonnie & Marcy, I was so sorry to hear the news, but the memories of Uncle Eddie go very deep. To call him a class act doesn’t begin to describe him or who he was. As the baby of the bunch, he always made me feel like I was a part of everything. And as I grew up and started working at the store with my dad, I learnt a lot from him and how he handled himself in business and how he treated people. It’s things I’ve used my entire adult life in my own business as well as my personal life. His memories will live in all who knew him as they will even more so for all of you and your families. May his memory be a blessing for all and may he Rest (probably in a suit and tie) In Peace Our sincere condolences and may you be spared any further pain and sorrow, Bradley, Joanne, Jory & Adina Brodkin

Heidi Doctor - 27 days ago

Roz and family, I was so saddened to hear about Sonny's passing. My dad always kept me up to date on how him and Roz were doing. I often got to see them both at my parents for family get togethers and it was always a treat especially with how much he resembled my late grandfather and the fun stores he would tell me of the past. I recently has the pleasure of seeing him for a quick hello when I delivered him ginger ale while they were quarantining from Florida. Happy my 2 boys will have memories of visiting with Sonny as well. He will surely be missed! May your memories give you strength during this time xoxo

Ivy Rabinovitch - 27 days ago

Dearest Raizel and family, My deepest most heartfelt condolences. I loved when I got to see you . Eddy always talked and was so nice to me. I always loved that he was the classiest dresser. He will be so miss. May you only have blessings going forward. Love Ivy

Julie Allan - 27 days ago

Sonny was lost to me for 60 years until our cousin Susan responded when I put out a sos to our Elias family who were trying to put together a family tree. Hey, I said. Does anyone ever heard of Sonny and Adele who live with my grandparents, Annie and Harry in Montreal on 1949/1950? I remembered them, especially handsome Sonny who must have been 20 years old and I was 9 or 10. He was my first crush. I only lived in Montreal for a year then, and didn’t visit my grandparents that often, but I never forgot beautiful Sonny. Our cousin Susan put us in touch with each other, so I had a chance to talk to him. He was as I remembered him from all those years ago, alive and vivacious and I’m sad that living in Los Angeles I didn’t have a chance to meet him (and Roz) in person again.

Howard Doctor - 27 days ago

Dear Roz, Bonnie and Marcy and families. i cannot tell you had saddened both Maureen and I were when we heard about Sonny's passing. My father was like a father to him and he was like a big brother to me. We so enjoyed the times we would see each other and for sure I will miss he conversations we had. It was always his way or the highway, and that's what made him so special. As he turned 90 he showed up at my house one day and showed me his new Mercedes convertible. Age to him meant nothing. He was always so young at heart. He will surely be missed by all of his grandchildren and great grandchildren, there were his life. To have know him for such a long time was truly a blessing for us. Maureen and I will have a big void now that he is no longer with us. May your memories be a source of comfort to all of you during these most difficult times. Maureen and Howard

Evey Segal Stein - 27 days ago

Dearest Roz....I am so sorry to hear about Eddy. I still remember our first trip with both of you to Israel in 1978. It was our best vacation and the laughter could not be duplicated Unfortunately, Morty passed away 6 months ago but I know how fond he was of Eddy. Wishing you only good memories and I know you have a lifetime of those....let them help you through this difficult time. My very sincere condolences. Love you always, Evey

George Lipp - 27 days ago

Susan's message is a hard act to follow. We reconnected with a lost arm of our family thanks to the efforts of Steve Goldberg in Israel. He needed me to find Sonny Elias in Pompano, not far from where we live, to add to his family tree project. Ever since then, around 6 or 7 years ago, we have looked forward to winter when Roz and Eddy would come down to Florida. We had many many good times at La Bamba restaurant, Seders, Thanksgivings, and Coconuts where we could bring our dog Leon. They may have been 20 years older than us but I hope they enjoyed our company as much as we enjoyed theirs. My son Alan said that he will think of Eddy every time he wears nice looking shoes. Eddy was definitely a clotheshorse. I wish we had found Eddy and Roz earlier but the times we had were special. Our heartfelt condolences to Roz, Bonnie and Irwin, Marcie and Allen, Aaron and Wally, Chantal and family. We love you and miss Eddy already.

Allan & Debbie Brodkin - 27 days ago

Dear Roz, Marcy, Bonnie and family We were truly saddened to hear of Eddy’s passing. Although we were not close in recent years, we always thought of you as being part of our parent’s family. Through our childhood years we were always used to seeing and being with you whether on a vacation up northern the holidays, the “big” card games and at simchas. We wish you only the best and you should have only good things going forward. Love to you all

Susan Elias - 27 days ago

Dear Roz, Bonnie and Irwin, Marcie and Allen, Aaron and Wally, Chantal and family, I am heartbroken over the loss of cousin Eddy. Eddy and Roz came into my life six years ago and it was one of the most special things for me, and I know for cousin George and Lisa. To discover and fall in love with 'new' family members was unprecedented and yet so comfortable. Eddy was an elegant, funny, loving man with contagious strength and optimism. He was also irreverent in a similar way to his first cousin, my father, whom unfortunately Eddy didn't know, well. I know how much you all love each other, and how hard this is for all of you, including, Chantal, who treated Eddy and Roz as family. My heartfelt sympathies on your loss. Eddy can not be replaced and will never be forgotten. I hope the many beautiful memories that you shared will provide some comfort going forward. I am deeply grateful that I had a few years of knowing him as well. With ongoing love, Susan
