"I want to thank you for performing the wedding ceremony for my daughter Amy
Balsam and Javier Estrada this past Saturday. What a lovely ceremony!! You
truly made it personal and explained the ceremony beautifully. My guests
were all impressed as was I, Amy's father and Javier's mother. Thanks
"Ron, the ceremony was so lovely. It was really something of a gamble on my
part, considering we had met only once before the Bar Mitzvah. You were
wonderful. Exactly what I had hoped for. So many people complimented it and
were moved by it. Thank you."
"Thank you so much for conducting the wedding ceremony for Joanie and Alex.
It was significant, personal, totally suited to the two of them and involved
all the generations present and past. We were supremely happy with your
cantorial skills and delivery."
