"Dr. Sleph was a beautiful glass artist. I don't think he liked me very much, but his family is  a big part of who I am. I never had met a Jewish family before and they took me into their home because of Pami. When i visited their home on Valley crest blvd. on the occasion of our 30th high school reunion, I was invited for shabat. I will always remember the beautiful glasswork he designed. Artists are angels that live amongst us to make our world a lovely place. RIP"

"Words can't say how deeply my soul misses you, but you know that!
We are still a team, but you know that!
You and Mom have made me strong, but you know that!
I will move forward and never leave you behind, you know that too.
You fill me with life with every breath I take.
I am so very lucky you were standing in front of the window.
I love you Daddy."

"I remember those times within the green house and fresh grown tomatoes for the picking and quiet lawn mowing jobs of whence I was younger and thinking of where the road shall lead Me . And those moments of quiet walks on the side walk with ones life long partner and low and behold there's Me sitting on the curb with a hammer , hammering this '' flat surface ''  with an intensity to be asked a question and with an answer that disserved a truer meaning within all those words spoken and so the night falls for one last time as the road takes Me to other places and whence this day - this light will shine +"
