Kathy Mayer Skinner

When our father Mel Mayer was still alive, Bruce, Mom, Dad & I had a wonderful dinner with Beryl & Cissy in the city. Cissy was always so warm and friendly. I'm glad we have this recent memory of the two of them. It couldn't have been more than ten years ago. We have so many fond memories of the two of them as we grew up. Both Beryl & Cissy were such good friends to our family. Please accept our sincerest condolences to all of you, the Birndorf and Young family.
