To the Rawding family . Brad, Todd, Kenny, Blair and Spouses and grandchildren .Sometimes its hard not to wish for one more day ,or one more chance to say goodbye, but you should rest assured that you were a joy to your mom every day of your life and she was immensely proud of you.. It was a privilege to have known her and we can see that her goodness lives on through you and your family. I know at times like this it is hard to see through the sorrow , but I hope that reflecting on the wonderful memories of Fania and you shared will help you to see the light again. My deepest sympathies for your loss. I will miss Fania dearly as I seen and talked to her everyday, She was a very dear friend and resident of North Queens, She loved watching the birds we fed .Brad you were so dedicated to your Mom as I do not think you missed a day coming to the home and taking her for walks, These passed 4 months with this Covid virus made it so difficult for Fania and her family, She woke up each morning waiting to hear from her children
