Dear The Bluestein Family,
I met my very good friend Annette, while working at Beth El Pre-School and she introduced Sy to my husband and me. We would go out socially for many years. One of the best occasions was Annette's and Sy's combined 80th birthday party. They will be sorely missed, but will always be remembered for a blessing.

I remember having Jewish holiday's together as well as going out to dinner with your beautiful Mother and your father to many dinners together. My condolences to all of you and your many wonderful memories be a blessing for you.

I'll never forget growing up and going to your parents house. Mr. Bluestein would always get a kick out of showing us magic tricks and would always treat us like family. He's dearly missed but fondly remembered.

Dear Mickey and Family,
We are sorry for your loss. I didn't meet Sy until about five years ago. What first struck me was that he was a tall good looking man. Then I was introduced to him and he reached out to shake my hand and gave me a big welcoming smile that made me smile. Not many people have the ability to make you really smile, Sy did. He was funny and a nice guy, but when I think of him, and I do often, I always remember his warm smile.

Mickey, Steve, and Family,
We are sad to hear of the passing of SY. He loved his family very much and always had a smile on his face. He was an avid tennis player, and loved to tell me about his tennis games; and enjoyed being with his friends, and family telling jokes and having a good time. We will miss him. May his memory be for a blessing.

So sorry for your loss. My thoughts are with you. Sy always talked about his children and grandchildren and of how proud he was of you. We go way back to Blanche Ave and I have over 40 years of fond memories.

We are so saddened to learn of Cy's passing. He always greeted us with a smile and a joke. I so enjoyed reminiscing with Cy our happy days playing tennis together and going out for dinner. May the many fond memories spent with him give you comfort during this sad time and forever. Please accept our deepest condolences.

I will miss him! It was so fun spending Hanukkah and Christmas with him. He loved bagels and lox. And his magic tricks were the best! Love you Sy!

Perry and I send sympathy to Mickey and Stevie and family. Sy was a wonderful friend to me with Annette when others left me out in Baltimore before I moved to Florida. Trips to Lexington Market were most enjoyable.
