During the recent blackout Estelle Greenburg visited a number of people to ensure their safety, including me.  She took me to the only open restaurant so that I could have a cooked meal instead of raw PB&J again.  She offered to have me sleep at her house when she was the first to get power.  Thank you, Estelle!  -- Niesie Shulkin
