To the whole Alpert Family, I am so sorry for this hard loss of your Mom, who, along with your Dad, we enjoyed visiting with throughout the years. Our parents' lives were so enmeshed. Love and support to you all. May her memory be for a blessing.I know both your parents will be with you always. Jackie Leffert Rubenstein

I met Ettarae when I joined the Renegades Book group in Fayetteville. I was immediately drawn to her for her no nonsense personality which seemed to match my own. But I really appreciated her when I was diagnosed with breast cancer and she volunteered her experience and support. I know she missed her husband and her friend Lois. It was hard for her to go on without them. I will miss her always. May she rest in peace.
