Losing a friend is always hard but losing one of your dearest friends is doubly so.

I have known Ethel since we were teenagers, hitting it off from the beginning and we continued to share our lives all these years. From our subsequent marriages, kid, camping and traveling, seders and thanksgiving dinners, sharing happy and sad times and our very many confidences.

She was a talented lady and had a wonderful way with words, producing many terrific shows at our temple. What a fun time we all had together because of her.

I loved her with all my heart and will miss her always.

Shalom old friend.
