Sherry Kaufman recently attended a Family Mitzvah event at JFCS along with her husband Buddy and six of their grandchildren: Zach, Tiana, Spencer, Madelyn, Shanna and Julia. Sherry says she feels “very blessed” to have been able to count on JFCS for services for her parents Charles and Lillian Lazarus.
Charles and Lillian lived mostly independently for 72 and ½ years with the help of JFCS PALS, Senior Concierge and other services. The late couple lived for 99 and 95.5 years respectively, with Lillian cooking every day for the two. “It was great to count on JFCS to assist my parents with laundry, grocery shopping, beauty parlor appointments and errands since I still work,” remarked Sherry.
“My parents were more than my parents – they were my buddies,” said Sherry who misses them even as she is grateful to JoAnn Kalb, Shelley Kahn and all those at JFCS who increased the quality of her parent’s lives. “Support offered by JFCS made my life easier too just knowing that my parents were well cared for.”
