Dear Lorraine and family,
We were so sad to hear today that Uncle Abe has passed away. Tom has always spoken so fondly of your family. He talks about the wonderful time his family spent with your family, some 45 years ago, over the Thanksgiving holiday in New York. We remember your visits to Chicago and enjoyed your company so much. You and Uncle Abe were good role models for all of us. Tom and I enjoy many of the same things that you enjoyed including hiking, nature, scrabble and of course family. You are in our thoughts and prayers always!

Sorry to hear of Abe's passing. I worked with Abe for 5 years and was the first person I met at Tishman. I learned many things from him and he was a mentor and pleasure to work with. I found him to always be a gentleman. and caring about others.
