My fond memories of Tania go back to when I was a little girl, listening to Tania singing songs, enjoying her watercolor artwork, and knowing then what a kind and caring person she was. I will cherish these memories and be forever grateful for knowing who Tania was. My thoughts go to Phil, Fanny, Lee, and Sue. May her Memory be a Blessing.

Wishing the whole family long life. Tania was one of my moms first friends when we moved from Joburg to Cape Town and the whole Jacobson family was very much part of my childhood growing up in Milnerton.
I am thinking of you all during this difficult time.

My wife Frona and I are friends with Phillippa and several years ago, knowing we would be traveling to Capetown, she arranged for us to meet with her mother. Tania was a wonderful hostess. We spent the day with her viewing the Jewish sites of Capetown and enjoyed a lovely lunch with her at the Jewish Museum. We will always remember our visit with such a vibrant and lovely person.

Philippa and family,

So sorry to read about your mother's passing. What an example you've been ---proving that family ties stretch and remain strong over great distances. May you hold tight to your good memories and to those bonds that have bound you together, no matter where you are.

Barbara (and Teddy)
