For decades, the children of West School felt they personally knew and adored Lyle and Ira. His books never remained on my library shelves; they were read and re-read and forever cherished my generations of our children. Heartful thanks for the gift of instilling such love for stories and books in our youngest readers. From their most grateful former librarian.
Ira Sleeps Over was read to my first graders for many years. May his family find comfort knowing he was loved by many.
Mr. Waber brought so much joy to me, and to all the children who were blessed to read his stories. Deepest condolences to his family.
I had the privilege of meeting Mr. Waber when he visited my school in the 1990s. He was a lovely man, and the children loved it when he drew Lyle for them. Sincere sympathy to his family, with deep gratitude for sharing him with all of us who enjoyed his books.
May the comfort and strength only God can give be with the Waber family.
