Dear John and Jeffrey;
My condolences on the passing of your mother Choma. I am your cousin from Connecticut, Harvey Leon Frydman. My brother Howard and I had just mention our relatives in Florida, and I was saddened to find the news of your mother's recent passing. My father, Jack, who passed away in 2007, always stated knowing your mother in Poland, and that she was beautiful. They both survived Auchwitz as teenagers. I know that my father would visit your mother and father when they lived in Cuba.
The last time I saw you was when Jeffrey had his bar mitvah in November, 1967. I know the date and recall the event, as I also had a bar mitzvah the week before Jeffrey's celebration. My parents also kept a blue covered match book from John's bar mitzvah. I still have it!
I would like to get in contact with you. My email is firstname.lastname@example.org. My cell phone number is 1-860-280-8689.
Again, my condolences on the passing of your mother Choma. I also knew the name Raizl, who would call my father at this time of year to wish us a Happy New Year. We have few relatives.
I would be happy to hear from you.
Harvey Leon Frydman

My thoughts and prayers are with you in your time of grief. May your memories bring you comfort.
Surely there is a special place for all our survivors to reunite with the loved ones they lost, and share in that loving light. My deep condolences on your loss.
