Matilda Grosser

From Jennifer Futterman

How lucky I am to know a woman like you.

You inspire me because

of the way you triumph in the face of adversity. Because of the way you can talk with anyone and win-over all who meet you. Because of the persistence and determination with which you face each day. You remind me of just how important strength of mind and will can be.

Something I have learned from you is

about simple pleasures in life like foil covered chocolate lollipops and marzipan. About the homely things in life like baking on Passover and framing pictures. About the friendly things in life like asking questions and practicing patience.

Thank you for

always taking an interest in my goings-on, for your one of a kind sense of humor and for always being exactly you.

Additional Thoughts

Itamar, Aya and I are lucky to have a Bubbie like you.

You can also honor someone important in your life by selecting a "We Celebrate Tribute" in the JWA store.
