"We miss you Grandpa. Just like last year you have blessed us with your presence and love by spouting the first rose bud of the season from the roses we got from your celebration of life 2 years ago. It's remarkable but I'm more confident than ever that is you. Zariah talks about you all the time. Your great grandkids miss you a lot. We love you Grandpa. Xoxoxoxoxox"

"One year later, I still think of Dad and miss him. He was always happy and loved to laugh. He was sharp and sensible and never complained. I miss talking to him. I also know he would want me to get busy with the business of life. Everyday was a gift to Dad, and he lived life as fully as he could. On his last Thanksgiving when asked what he was grateful for, he said, "I'm alive." He was grateful for just that."

"It's hard to believe one year has gone since my dear father-in-law, Maury, passed away.  Every day I see evidence of the legacy and gifts he's left behind, in his children, his grandchildren, and my own grand babies - as well as the joy for life he always exuded.  We miss you Maury but I, (and all) are so grateful we shared this journey with you.

"Happy Birthday Dad!

Last Saturday, on August 8, Dad would have turned 98. He was so close to getting to that big 100th Birthday party. I will think of him every year in August, but especially in 2017 when he would have reached the big 100."

"We are saddened by hearing of Maury's passing.  I have such fond memories of him over the last 65 years -- after he and my cousin, Anita, were married.  I was so impressed that he was traveling to Washington D.C. to show the government people the plans he worked on inventing a stable table for machine guns on tanks.  Such a brilliant and loving man.  Barbara Kelly."

"Lisa, Gary, and Paul,

I am so sorry for your loss! My thoughts and prayers are with you. I have good memories of your dad from when we were kids in the neighborhood, and am so happy I got to share our special house sale celebration dinner in October.

Find comfort in the fact that your dad is again with your mom, with my mom and dad, and we will see them again some day. Maury lived a long wonderful life and made the world a better place. We were lucky to have had our dads for as long as we did and they will live in our hearts forever.    

Love, Val"

"Lisa, Gary and Paul - My heart is saddened by hearing of Maury's passing.

But brightened by reading and seeing the pictures of his tribute.

It was an honour to help Maury sell his home. I'm so happy he had a long life at Highcliff.

I had the pleasure of taking him out to dinner as a Thank You. We had Mexican Food, and Maury at 96 was downing the Chips and Salsa and Margaritas! He is Awesome.

We are all blessed to have him in our lifes!

Fond Memories,

Ron Vallery"

"My heart will never be the same.  Life without Maury has lost a huge step.   We always had a wonderful time when we were together - traveling, at the opera, playing bridge or scrabble, sharing a sandwich with his famous gin martini, smelling his roses, watching a sunset.   I will cherish these memories.  My sympathies to the family."
