My condolences on the passing of your Mother, Ray Gilsig. My fondest memories of her are her deep love for both of you and her grandchildren, her confidence and strength, shopping skills, and her Jewish mother ways especially when making a great meal in the kitchen.

Dear Marcie and Richard,
Our sincerest condolences for your loss. I have to say, that having spent many dinners in the company of your mother over the years, I distinctly remember her laugh. I always liked hearing her laugh. I hope time heals your sorrow and may she rest in peace. Love, Ilana, Scott, Sarah and Emily
