How can we thank you enough for all you have done for our family in Birmingham and in Jasper? Twenty-seven years is a very big part of our lives. You were always there when we needed you. You officiated at Elise and Hank’s beautiful wedding eighteen years ago. Then came the baby namings for Molly and Evie, and later Molly’s wonderful Bat Mitzvah. All these simchas brought us such joy! You also lifted our spirits in sad times with your presence, prayers and visits. You conducted funerals in Jasper for Gerson’s mother and father, and became loved and respected there by our friends. They will miss you too.
We looked forward to being at Shabbat services with you when Gerson retired. But ironically, you retired also. Now, when we are at Temple in Birmingham on Friday nights, we think of you in DC.
We wish you and Judi many healthy and happy years together enjoying yourselves with your children and watching your grandchildren grow. Please don’t forget us. We will never forget you.
Judy and Gerson May
