To: Linda Ann Friedman Berman 17 January 2010
From: your brother Daniel (Danny Pupsie Boy) Friedman
To My Loving Sister Linda,
I was thrilled when you showed me the lonely hearts book to which you and Evie Key had sent in personal descriptions and photos – purely as a naive lark. You showed me the crazy letters you got, some of them anyway, from hungry men who prowled those pages. You and Evie laughed hysterically, from the safe position of your bedroom. It was exciting when Mom, during one of her regular searches into our “stuff”, found those letters and became hysterical, certain that the two of you were teen age prostitutes. Well maybe not certain. Just fearful. – Innocence.
I absolutely loved it when you were the one in trouble, since I was usually the trouble maker. That was when, maybe around thirteen for you and ten for me, we started saying to one another, thank god I wasn’t an only child. No one else would believe this shit. We knew then, and we’ve always known, that we could believe one another.
Do you remember taking me along, riding in the back seat on one of your dates? The boy didn’t exactly like the idea, but he offered me a cigarette – which I loved.
It was my first smoke, or try at smoking, and in the dark, do you remember the stink in the car when I lit the filter end of the cigarette? – Youth.
Do you remember driving me to my guitar lessons? I do. I crouched hiding down on the floor in the back of the car (I think it was that black ’56 Chevy) while you and Evie danced in the middle of the intersection in your baby-doll shortie pajamas.
It was fun seeing if you could embarrass your baby brother. It was big fun. – Fun.
Do you remember our parents insisting that you stop dating that “ne’r do well vacuum cleaner salesman”? A week later his song hit the top of the charts across the U.S. “She wore an itsy bitsy, teenie weenie, yellow polka dot bikini.” She was afraid to come out of the water, she was afraid that somebody would see. She wore an itsy bitsy, teenie weenie yellow polka dot bikini, and in the water, she wanted to stay. Ya missed your chance to be super-rich, Sis. That’s ok. Irwin isn’t so bad. – Chance.
I remember how much you loved visiting the family at Virginia Beach. Just look at the expression on your face (photo at left)! Irwin has that pre-gerbil biting face, and baby Jennifer had had enough already. – Endurance.
Wasn’t it exciting when the Hogan’s dog Margaret tried to eat Jennifer? No wonder she looked worried in her photos.
What about those adventures with Bobby Hoffman sneaking around outside our house in the dark? Sniffing around like a mangy dog. – Whispering.
Bobby has been replaced by the two Boca Raton electricians, (one of them is also named Bob) but it’s still been an adventure worth remarking on. Well you did most of the visiting. Thank you. – Generosity.
You were loyal and supportive to me through all my wives and girl friends, never calling them funny names like “Bitch” or “Woody”.
Sometimes, you used veiled expressions (above left-center) to show me how to deal with having to be someplace that we’d rather not be. – Secret Power. – Loyalty.

Two Arias at the Moment of Passing
At the moment of Linda's Passing her brother was attending Cantantes Camino al Estrellata, an opera recital in San Miguel de Allende Mexico where ten young opera singers, chosen from among more than 100, each sang two operas in a competition. Below is the text, in translation, of what was being sung at 9:15 PM EST on 03/13/2010. The first aria, was begun at that moment - from her first note, soprano, Gizelxanth Rodriguez's voice brought a surge of deep tears. The second aria, sung by soprano Aaira Soria Tinoco, fit.
“In quelle trine morbide”, from Puccini’s Manon Lescaut
In these soft silken drapes and gilded alcove,
Then I had fervent caresses and sensuous
I again think about my humble dwelling,
“Song of the Moon” from Dvorak’s Rusalka
O moon high up in the deep, deep sky,
O, moon, stand still for a moment,
Light up his far away place,
