Carole Weinberg from Cleveland, OH

"Dear Brandli Family- I had the great privilege of knowing Jack and Eileen for almost 25 years. I attended their 50th wedding celebration-they embodied what a true life partnership should be-tears, laughter, mutual support, and strength. I'm sorry geography will not permit me to join you on Monday to share my condolences in person."
