How very sad to see this. Mrs. Stern was a customer @ the pharmacy where I worked in Warwick, NY ......what a lovely lady! It was always so nice to see her and chat with her when she would come in! She was a beautiful and caring person & I thought about her often when I retired & moved to Delaware. Rest in Peace Mrs Stern - I feel privileged to have known you! With sympathy to your family- Dianne Buturla
