John and I are so very sorry to hear of Miriam's passing -- a dear neighbor and lovely friend. We miss Izzy and her very much. I admire them very much , the way they lived, loving each other and the zest for life.

It was with a heavy heart that I heard of the passing of Miriam Steckel. Growing up as a close boyhood friend of Alan I will always remember Miriam as a sweet and soft spoken woman. My thoughts are with Alan and Beth and their families. May her memory be a blessing.
