Gita Silver - about 3 hours ago

Dear Cecile and Henry, How sorry I am to hear of the loss of your mother. I am so very thankful to have been able to meet her again when I was last in Montreal. It had been almost sixty years since she last set eyes on me and yet she could still recall things about me as a child. I have such fond memories of spending hours at play at her home during my Peretz years with Cecile. What an incredibly amazing woman to have lived so exemplary a life after the experiences she suffered during the war. Her spirit, resilience, and strength will live on in all those whose lives she touched. I hope you will find comfort in the embrace of close family and may you both glean that same gentle caring, nurturing, and patient love you so generously shared with your mother in your years together. May her memory be for a blessing. Gita Silver
