Personal Notes:
We met Toby and Mitch Kriss when we moved to Buffalo Grove, IL in 1985 at Temple Chai in Long Grove; we were both expecting our second children when we met. She and her family quickly became our family, too. Coincidence that we were all from NY (Toby, her husband, Mitch, Carl and me). Since we were far away from blood relatives, and because our children were similar ages, we began celebrating all the Jewish holidays together. To this day, if we are not with our children and grandchildren, we are together on these joyful occasions; even Thanksgiving! The Kriss family is the family we chose, rather than the family we were born into. They continue to be part of our lives today.
