Wedding of Kim and Jeff Barry

There are many memories of ‘country life’ as I used to think of it in contrast to New York that will remain with me always. Stepping on that hot grate before Allen’s wedding, getting lost in Bees Creek NC while trying to go to Va Bch with Pat, seeing all the girl cousins dancing to the little record player in the 60’s, Kenneth coming home from Mr. Jim’s with a huge sub at night, going to the commissary movie theater to see Patton, and on and on. I will miss you and remember you always Aunt Estelle. Love Robert

Aunt Estelle –I remember the sewing machine up the attic from which you made amazing wedding dresses. I remember our Jewish conversations this past few years. I will say Kaddish for you. Love, Hope
