    Never can forget what you did for students at 118 and how much they adored you. Graduation, That’s What Friends Are For, so keep smiling over us and I will keep playing that song on my piano as I remember you always.
    For teachers and me, you were a mentor and friend.

    Lew was a wonderful person; he was caring for others. As a neighbor for 24 years, he was the go-to person when we needed help. He was always happy to help us in every possible way. I was fortunate to have him as my neighbor. He was a happy & very friendly individual. He would look out for others who were less fortunate. He loved his family. His memory will be forever etched in my mind & the mind of my family. the neighborhood will never be the same. May G-D bless his wife, children & grandchildren.

  3. Susan Farrell Windham (Class of ‘79)

    Mr. Weinberg was an integral part of my youth. He was a part of my life for 9 years while my siblings and I attended 118. He guided us to do what was right and gave us a reason to smile. Will never forget him pulling me out in the hall for getting a B. He let me know a B was not Fu**ing acceptable, as I typically got A’s but tried hard to get a B so I would not keep getting called Brainiac. He made me see I should be proud. I am proud to have called Weinberg my friend. I will miss you Weinberg, Rest in Peace. Say hi to Ray for me.
