We were childhood sweethearts as only 4 and 5 year cousins can be. I would pull you around in an old red flyer wagon. You were Queen Victoria and I was Prince Albert. There are many more precious memories that we shared.
I was an usher at your wedding and you truly looked like a Queen and Bill was certainly your Prince Charming
My deepest sympathy to the family

Robert Boettger

The Lipkind family is deeply sorry for your loss and I wish to share their condolences.
My heart is heavy with a crushing sadness; no doubt triggered by memories of her significant presence throughout my entire childhood and early adult life.
Though I had not seen or spoken with her for years, regrettably, the loss is profound.
My love to you all during this difficult time; be well and take care.

Lisa Lipkind
