Dear Roger,
I first met your Mother and Dad in , July 1968, when my first child was born. THEY took excellent care of my son and daughter from birth through college, helping us through asthma attacks, weekly allergy injections, major surgery, etc. Your Mother was “my best friend”, “my rock”, for all those years. She was accessible, patient, kind, always ready to listen and answer my numerous stupid questions.
She, (and Dr. B) will always hold a special place in my heart, and, I, and my family, will be eternally grateful to them.

Most, Sincerely,
Gloria Rowland

Mrs. Blumenthal, as well as her late husband, Dr. Stanley Blumenthal, were valued and delightful clients of my custom picture framing business for many decades. Their son, Roger Blumenthal, MD, carried on in that tradition. Anita relocated to Baltimore to be closer to Roger, his bride Dr.Wendy Post and their lacrosse talented son Ross. Roger had evolved into one of my top 10 clients often bring his mother along just for a visit. She was an extremely interesting person with a great appreciation for how her friends and family exhibited their love. Understand that with several good frame shops in their immediate Hopkins area, Anita and Roger would travel the roughly 50 miles to Wheaton to bring me their projects. Retired now for almost five years I am often asked what I miss most about my business. It's folks like Mrs. Blumenthal and her son that made my work a pleasure. I know that her memory will help fill the void of her loss.

Dear Roger,
When I heard about your Mother's death for some reason the words 'Contact Tracing' came to mind.
I first met Anita over 30 years ago when I went with my daughter , with my first Grandson, for his Doctor's appointment with your Father. A little over 20 years ago, when my husband became critically ill, that same daughter recalled that her children's pediatrician had a son who became a heart doctor. No doubt this was a direct result of that son's mother telling anyone who would listen , about her wonderful son. It took only one call and we were on our way from Palm Beach County, FL. to Baltimore. This brings me to that contact tracing. Two wonderful caring doctors can be directly traced to a wonderful caring wife and mother. All the many people you and your father have helped are your Mother's Legacy. I will miss our lunches once a year when you and Wendy would bring little Ross and Anita (to care for him) as you attended a conference here. Over the years, Anita and I would keep contact by phone and solve the current problems of the World.
Anita, you were much loved.

Dear Roger
We were so sorry to hear about your Mom. Herb and I remember your Mom and Dad so well from the Colonnade. She usually had Ross with her and would stop to talk with us. She was lovely and so proud of Ross - he was a darling little boy then. We know she will be missed.

In 1953, I knew this wonderful lady as Miss Monfred, she was my third grade teacher at Fallstaff Elementary School. Most likely her first teaching job and splendid she was. She instilled in me my life-long love of reading starting with the story of Davey Crockett. She was kind and gentle to all of her students. Rest in peace and may her loving memory be a blessing to all who knew her.

Dear Roger, Wendy and Ross,
Please accept our sincerest sympathies on the loss of your dear mother and grandmother. There are no consoling words that seem adequate enough other than, your loss is shared by all those who had the privilege of knowing her.

To us, she was always “Bootsie.” We always enjoyed visiting her at Symphony Manor and spending time with her at the piano. We remember how often Bootsie baby-sat for us when Mom and Dad went away on cruises. We can remember when your Dad, Stanley, came to pick up Bootsie at our house for their first date. The 3 of us were sitting on the steps watching.

We hope the memories of good times shared together will help ease the pain of your sorrow in the days ahead. Our thoughts and prayers are with you. May all of your memories be beautiful ones and help carry you through this difficult time. We hope her memory will help you get through this difficult time. We pray that the time will not be distant when you will remember her with a smile instead of a tear. Sincerely, Steve and Eileen
