I'm very sad to hear of the passing of my friend Mitchell Gilbert. My lasting impression of Mitchell is that of a kind, caring guy. I was happy to talk with him at the reunion, it brought back a lot of great memories.

Sending heartfelt condolences from Oregon on your loss. A very special guy and a dear childhood friend, I'm thankful we spent time together during my last trip to Chicago for our reunion. He was a kind, considerate, generous and loyal man who loved his family and friends. RIP, dear friend.

I remember our Sherwin Avenue activities with fond memories and trust that you do as well. Our parents were friends even after your family moved away. Hang on to all the good memories. Thinking of all of you.

Marlene, so sorry to hear about Mitch. We´re cousins through Reeta and Nate Berman, my grandparents. Reeta and Lou Goldberg were siblings. I met Mitch through Capital Hardware. May your memories be for a blessing.
