Our deepest sympathy on the loss of your mother. She was a kind and compassionate person. On many occasions when Betty was taking a walk around the block she would stop in to visit my dearly departed
mother Frieda Amdur. May her memory be a cherished blessing to you.

I’m so sorry for the loss of your lovely mother. I had the opportunity to get to know Betty at the Myerberg Center where she was an avid party bridge player. She always had a smile, kind word for me and a suggestion of how to recruit more bridge players! She was lucky to have such a devoted daughter. May her memory always be a blessing.
