“Dear Ron, Yuri and I cannot thank you enough for the beautiful ceremony yesterday. I’m sorry we didn’t get to say a proper goodbye; we got so wrapped up with the first dance we couldn’t break away. We are so thankful to have had you there to marry us and we will forever be grateful to you! I think you have acquired a pretty large fan base from our wedding attendees….they all thought you were wonderful! Thank you again. Yuri and I are very happy and look forward to a wonderful life together! Your friends, Yuri and Brielle PS – maybe we’ll call you for the bris! Hahah”

“I just wanted to tell you that everyone at my daughters Bat Mitzvah was incredibly impressed with your service the Jewish and the non-Jewish alike. If you ever need a referral I would be very happy to provide one. We couldn’t have asked for a better service. ”

“Ron We had so many wonderful comments about how beautiful the service was. Thank you so much, it was just what we envisioned for Sophia when I first called you. She was very proud of herself, just as we were proud of her. You did a great job with Sophia and I know how obstinate she was at times. We will also miss seeing you on Tuesdays. Eric and I would like to make a donation in your honor, do you have a favorite charity, or cause? Have a good year.”
