Condolences to Terri & the Posner family. I have known Terri from Pikesville Junior High School days. We we in classes together. I believe Terry told me she was related to the "Posner Brothers Kosher Butchers", across from Reisterstown Plaza. My mom (OBM) used to take me into the store to buy kosher meats, back in the 1970's. May you cherish all the wonderful memories of Gloria ! May Hashem bless her good soul. Baruch Hashem !!!

Dear Wendi, Terry, Gary, Ronnie and the Posner/Azrael and extended Families,
When I met Wendi we were in our early teens and she invited me to her house. Her older brother Ronnie and younger siblings Terry and Gary lived at home with their parents. Visiting at different times I met Neil of Blessed memory, Pam, Merna, Sandy, Gloria and their spouses and children.
They were a multi-generational family who always shared a command bound of love and a committed total relationship of concern for each other.
There was always something happening at ''The Posner Ranch'' which led to cherished warm memories for so many people.
It is with a heavy heart that we mourn the passing of Gloria. She was a quiet reserved woman who was always kind and caring. May her memory always grace us with the love she gave to so many people especially her beloved family.

Dear Wendy & all of the Posner & Asrael family, Jay joins me in sending our heartfelt condolences on the loss of your sister, Gloria. Over the years I have had the opportunity to meet some of the Posner siblings and was always in awe of the love, commitment & shared family sense of responsibility & values all of you had for each other despite (or perhaps because of) the different paths in life you took. The love you all have and share for each other (and one which is perhaps the envy of many families) was always the common denominator. Hoping as you mourn and grieve this most recent loss and tragedy, cherished memories of Gloria will continue to keep you close and the ties that bind you together will bring you some comfort in the coming days.

Sandy, Merna and family: My childhood memories are filled with happy stories from my mother Helene and aunt Sue (nee Cohen) of their warm memories of being in and out of the Posner household on the opposite corner of Dolfield and Lewin and all the fun they had with those three younger girls. In their memory, I offer sincere condolences and hope those happy memories provide some measure of consolation.
