I just found out about the loss of our dear Aunt Fay. My heartfelt condolences to the Sonnenreich family. I will always remember Aunt Fay because she intervened with some very serious camp bullying in '62 and her intervention (which included the parents of the girls who were doing the bullying) was aimed at developing empathy and inclusiveness while still setting limits. Let me end with a line from our HP song: "So, with loyalty, faithfully, we sing of your praise, of beautiful memories of past summer days." Thank you, Aunt Fay.

I could not sign this book when I first found out about Aunt Fay's death. It was too emotional for me. Years later now, I am finally able to add my very deepest sympathies and most heartfelt condolences to the fabulous Sonnenreich family, and the entire CHP family. Fay blessed all those around her with her unbounded, we-can-do-anything spirit and warm, loving smile.

Fay, Manny, Mike, and especially Bill, defined my childhood summers in the 60's. Those summers had a very large impact on the kind of person I became.

The true measure of a person's life is not how rich they were; rather it is how many other lives they enriched. By that measure Aunt Fay was one of the richest people in the world.

What a loss.

Please accept my deepest sympathies.

I just learned of Aunt Fay's death. I don't think there's a day that goes by, especially in summer, that Aunt Fay and Uncle Manny and Camp High Point are not somewhere in my conscious or unconscious mind. They, along with everyone else associated with camp, were such a huge part of my young years. I'm consoled by the knowledge that Aunt Fay lived a long and happy life, even after Camp High Point ended.

After I learned of Aunt Fay's death, I recalled a passage from one of Rabbi Harold Kushner's books:

"Our souls are not hungry for fame, comfort, wealth, or power. Those rewards create almost as many problems as they solve. Our souls are hungry for meaning, for the sense that we have figured out how to live so that our lives matter, so that the world will be at least a little bit different for our having passed through it."

Aunt Fay lived a long and fulfilling life that had significant meaning for members of her immediate family and for her extended family, the latter of which I am proud to have been a part of. The many different ways in which she and the Sonnenreich family influenced the lives of those of us fortunate enough to have attended Camp High Point serve as a legacy for having made our worlds different. Although I share in the sadness of her death, I am also thankful for having had her as a part of my life.

To Bill, Mike and all the Sonnenreich family - Aunt Fay had such a special way of making each person feel a part of her "family". It was great fun putting together the Camp Highpoint Songbook a few years ago and my greatest pleasure presenting it to Aunt Fay. Please accept my most heartfelt sympathy. Aunt Fay and Camp Highpoint will always be a part of me.

I REMENBER AUNT FAY AS A PERSON WHO
REALLY CARED ABOUT EVERYONE. ON THE CAMP FIRST NIGHT SHE WOULD TELL ALL
OF THE KIDS WHO WERE KOSHER ABOUT THE MEALS' DRINKS. EVEN WHEN I HELP MY FATHER DID THE MID CAMP AUDIT SHE WAS ALWAYS VERY NICE. SHE ALWAYS CARED ABOUT YOUR WHOLE FAMILY.I WILL TRULY MISS HER.

I remember Fay as a remarkable woman having great strength of character, vitality and intelligence. She could also be a tough taskmaster but would always temper it with fairness, generosity and love. She had a talent for bringing out the very best in people. I am privileged to have known her. My heart goes out to the Sonnenreich family for their
loss.

The eternal gift of love and friendship that Fay and her family has given to so many, is something that can only be adequately understood through our wonderful experience. This special gift of love will last forever. Those of us who were so fortunate to be touch by it, are forever grateful.
