Lenore was my two daughters Melissa and Amy's coach at IGI. She was an amazing and loving woman who loved the girls as her own. She was was always positive with them and always praised them. She was an amazing role model for her students! May she rest in the arms of Jesus and dance with the angels!

It has been many years since I have seen all of you, but, via the internet, I learned of your loss..I remember many happy sleepovers and fun times at the Schwartz household and Mrs. Schwartz was a big part of those memories. I wish you comfort at the loss of your Mom...
