On January 14, 2013, my father, Melvin B. Fishman, MD, was honored for his service during World War II, where he helped liberate France. He is now a Chevalier (knight) of the French Legion of Honor.

Congratulations on your retirement. While we are still in the Philadelphia area, we would like to see you, before we move full time to Florida. Maybe, you, Avi Eden, Lilly Blicblum, Emily Myers and Lee Shai Weissbach could get together some time (if social distancing permits).

Congratulations on your retirement. Ron Crutcher is correct - an impressive career.

Have a happy birthday, today, Michael.
Hope you can do something fun while we are all "social distancing." At least you can go outside in Arizona. We are walking near the beach in Deerfield Beach, FL.

Hi. Denni,
I am so sorry to learn of Cheri’s passing. She and I were counselors at Kamp Karefree. Such a wonderful caring person. She will be missed. Please extend our sympathy to your family.

I am so sorry to learn about Linda. She was very friendly and very smart; Linda graduated as one of the top 10 students in our Woodward class. I remember insightful comments she would make in our AP English classes in 10th, 11th and 12 grades.  I think we met at the JCC in 1960. She was a wonderful person, and she certainly will be missed.
