In Memoriam: Edith Gerber Shanker


Jenny, Michael and Adam, I feel anything I could say, would not be good enough to memorialize your Mom. My Mother was a mover and a shaker as was Eadie Shanker, and yes, your Dad. Watching the video, reading your memoriam, I find my own Mother , swimming before I eyes. I am so very sorry for your loss. You three have huge shoes to fill, and though I don't know what you, Adam are doing, now I know Michael and Jenny are following in Al and Eadie's footsteps. I wish I could find words to help you through this loss with Peace. Leslie

Dear Jennie, From what I read your MOM was a force. I think that is in your DNA also. Her immortality is in you, May her memory be a blessing.
