  1. Dear David and Simone. I am so sorry for the loss of your dear Mom. She was such a gift to so many throughout her lifetime. We will always remember her elegance, grace, and kindness.

  2. a Schulze daughter

    Loved you my whole life. Kept the glass horse you gave me in 1984 on my desk for decades and thought of you fondly when I would hold it. You were beauty to me in every way. The first memory I have of tasting sherry in a sauce was at your table. I remember your Christmas tree with real candles on it at your downtown Chicago home. A breath of fresh zeal and inspiration to women everywhere to be stronger, go further.

    You were loved deeply by me from afar.
