Monday, February 12, 2018A beautiful tribute to a wonderful woman, wife, mother and grandmother. She graced the world with her compassion, kindness and wry sense of humor, as well as the mayonnaise. My deepest sympathy to you all. May you find comfort and strength in one another’s company and keep her safely in your hearts.

Sunday, February 11, 2018When I think about Aunt Hope, what comes to mind first is her laugh. She always made you feel you’d surprised her with a very clever anecdote with her wonderfuly sudden, hiccupy laugh, often accompanied by a tear to be wiped away. Though I didn’t see her very often, Hopie was a warm and steady presence in my life, as she was for so many others. When I did see her, she always knew what to ask or follow up on, showing she paid attention and she cared- no matter how great the distance. And she did this with a lack of judgement that made answering her easy. Hope and Bob’s home has always been a comforting time-warp of memories, photos, dolls, laughter, voices, and glimpses of holidays gone by. It won’t be the same without her, but she’s all throughout it ... as she’s in each of us who ever knew her and can picture her smile, or hear her teary laugh. I’m so glad to have that. I send my love to Uncle Bob, and to Charity, Mandy, Flip and all the grandkids. I’m thinking of you all and wish I could be there with you. With much love, Candy

Sunday, February 11, 2018Hope died a week ago yesterday. I was brought back to thoughts of her last breaths and how peacefully she left. I was reminded how she was so fortunate to have her beloved children and devoted husband by her side, right up till the end. I was reminded of a vibrant and fun woman who gave me wisdom and guidance in her subtle and respectful ways. She was the balance in my world when everything was tipsy-turvy. She was a treasure and her life and spirit will live with me always. As with so many who knew her, I was blessed. I am so grateful for the opportunity to have been with all of you at such a precious time. I am also grateful for the gift of all of you in my life. Hope lives on in each of you. One thing is for sure, I will never be able to look at another jar if Hellman’s mayonnaise without thinking of Hope. I adore you all!❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️

Saturday, February 10, 2018Dear Family; Although I will not be able to be there on Tuesday, I want to send my heartfelt sympathy and condolences. Hopie was a force of nature, and I know how much you must already miss her. Her life was so full, and her happiness with it and with her family, shone from her. She was a true light in the lives of so many. I loved sharing her stories--of which there were dozens--as did my husband, her cousin Lee. Growing up in Ardsley, we also shared school memories, most of which were also fun, (and occasionally naughty) too. Memories are not lost, and Hope left us so many wonderful ones. She will be cherished always. God Speed, with love.

Wednesday, February 7, 2018Dear Mandy, Charity and all of Hope's family, I am Nancy Kittredge Jeffrey's daughter in Philadelphia and am writing to extend my condolences on the loss of your Mom. Jen and Mart shared the news with Mom who forwarded it to us. I loved knowing your folks and always had a connection with your Mom. On the occasion of Mom & Dad's golden wedding anniversary in 2001, she unearthed a special archive and turned it into a tribute from afar that I offered on their behalf at the event. I loved being her co-conspirator for that evening. And that beautiful obit; what a salute to Hope's life well lived as well as to the clever author(s) as the reference to her Hellman's stash caused a huge LOL from this reader! I will be thinking of your Dad and all of you as you find your footing again after this huge loss. With caring thoughts, Anne Jeffrey Wright

Tuesday, February 6, 2018It is with sadness that I send condolences to Hope's family and friends, especially the Lunder family with whom I consider myself a caring friend. Obviously Hope was a lady and homemaker of the traditional style with her gardens, party-giving, cooking and love for her family. May she rest in peace after a life well spent.
