In a letter to friends the Turock girls, Betty and Fanny said that their father had been hospitalized three times since February. He had been in intensive care for a couple of weeks in his last hospitalization, but had been moved from intensive care the day before his death and seemed improved. Because of his severe emphysema and other health problems, Abe had been bedfast or in a wheel chair for many months.
The letter continues with other news of the family, saying they are all well, and that Anna's daughter in Los Angeles is planning a January wedding. They expressed their best wishes to area friends.
Word was received by Hazel Lawson, Fairfield.
