We are all so sorry for your losses. Our prayers are with you. I attached a few photos I had found from Stephen's bar mitzvah. Thought you would enjoy them.

Your family is in my prayers. Mrs. Zucker was my 9th grade Spanish teacher. It amazed me that she could teach Spanish, French and Hebrew. She was quite the inspiration.
