hi Mel, You have my heartfelt condolences upon the loss of your dear mother, Tillie. I'm so sorry that I couldn't attend the funeral and shiva, but scheduling just would not allow (daughter's wedding, etc.). However, I welcome the chance to talk with you about feelings of losing a mother, as I unfortunately have knowledge of same. Sincerely, David Winograd
