prise luncheon held in the Wald-
man Bros, atrium on March 29.
In attendance were his wife, Carol
Gene; their children Kay Ellen and
lacob Pollack, Barbi and Scott Co-
hen, Wendy and Gary Tobias and
Lauren and Mark Cohen; and his
nine wonderful grandchildren,
along with more than 50 devoted
partners, employees and many of
their spouses. The company closed
for the duration of lunch to allow
all employees to celebrate together
in true family fashion. Steve Wald-
man, Waldman Bros. CEO, praised
Howard in a thoughtful public
toast, crediting him for his integral
role in developing Waldman's stel-
lar reputation. "Our firm's charac-
ter has never wavered, due in large
part to your kindness, genuine
love of people and desire to keep
Waldman Bros, a close-knit fam-
ily." Steve presented Howard with
a beautiful piece of Steuben crys-
tal mounted on an engraved base.
His distinctive national awards
over the years are too numerous
to list. Howard's generosity in the
nonprofit community is widely
known, as is his role as mentor in
the lives of many.

Brothers over the last 40 years as Howard's grandson looks on.
Dr. Arlene Jacobs to speak
on Sjogren's syndrome
For many years, I knew that
my daughter, Linda Wisch-David-
sohn, had an auto-immune disease
called Sjogren's syndrome. I also
knew that she was under the care
of an excellent rheumatologist, Dr.
Scott Zashin. However, it was not
until recently that I found out the
reasons for the seriousness of the
disease, and Linda has many of
Sjogren's syndrome often is un-
diagnosed or misdiagnosed. The
symptoms of Sjogren's syndrome
may mimic menopause, drug side
effects or medical conditions such
as lupus, rheumatoid arthritis,
fibromyalgia, scleroderma, vas-
culitis, chronic fatigue syndrome
or multiple sclerosis as well as a
host of other auto-immune dis-
eases. Sjogren's can be primary
or secondary. Since all symptoms
are not present at the same time
and because Sjogren's can involve
multiple organ systems, physicians
and dentists sometimes treat each
symptom individually and do not
recognize that a systemic disease
is present. The average time from
the onset of the disease to diagno-
sis is well over six years. In Linda's
case, her symptoms began in her
late 30s, but it took almost 20 years
to put the pieces of the puzzle to-
Some of the symptoms are dry
eyes and vision disorders, dry
mouth, thrush, salivary gland
problems, gastrointestinal dis-
orders, recurrent bronchitis and
pneumonia, gynecological issues,
as well as blood vessel and neuro-
logical involvement and joint dis-
orders. Although there is no cure
for Sjogren's syndrome, there are
some treatments available that
may help with the aggravating
discomfort. The best news of all is
that Sjogren's syndrome is treat-
able, and early diagnosis and prop-
er treatment may prevent serious
