Ira, Laura, and Sam, I'm sorry that Ary and I can't be with you this week. I can see and hear both my Uncle Herb and Aunt Roberta clearly in my memories, outspoken about their politics, always willing to tell stories, and dedicated to their art, each other, and their son. We're thinking of you and we love you.
