To the entire Olshaker family-- Steve and I are so sorry to hear about Irv's passing. Barbara, your parents are two of the sweetest people I have ever met. Irv was warm, generous, caring, and a wonderful volunteer when I worked at JFS Whenever he spoke about his family, his eyes lit up and he smiled from ear to ear! We know this is a very difficult time for all of you. We hope your good memories of happier times will bring you some consolation. Baruch Dayen Haemet. Love, Marcia and Steve

How wonderful a life Ike has lived! His contributions in the war, and the loving family he raised has made this world a better place to live. It’s such an honor to have know Ike, Pearl and Barbara as a second family. Ike’s legacy will always be carried in our hearts and minds, and shared for generations to come. Thank you, Ike, for your brotherhood with my father Norman—for working together to liberate a people; for your sense of humor and honor, and for your loving kindness. Thank you for inspiring our family and for making this life an amazing one for all who have journeyed with you.

Dear Pearl, Barbara, Eddie and Family,
We are so sorry to hear of the passing of your beloved husband and father Ike. We will always remember his gentle and caring ways toward others. Pearl, when you and Ike visited us after we had moved to Israel, it was like being with a part of home, and we appreciated your visit very much. Ike was so sweet playing with our little girl, then a toddler. We spent many happy times with you back at Nadine Drive, as we all gathered for back-yard parties. My whole family, including my parents of blessed memory, and of course my sister Josephine and her late husband Buddy, loved Ike very much. His easy-going friendly manner was beautiful. May your memories of Ike bring you comfort and may his memory be for a blessing.
