    Thank you for this lovely obituary honoring the life of my husband Isaac Levenbrown. He was very fond of so many of his clients, which is why he would want me to correct an error in this account. While his clients did include Paradigm, it was Debbie Klein the attorney who was his client, with her husband Mort Marcus, not Debbee Klein, the Paradigm agent (who, coincidentally, was my agent). I send my best to both Ms. Kleins. And for the record, I am not related to either of them!

        Ms Klein:
        I am a friend of your late husband’s cousin Yitzchok (Baltimore) and acquainted with the other Isaac L in Teaneck.
        I also knew Brittany when she was in law school. My condolences to you all. Hamakom yinachem etchem

        How great. Thanks so much. Many of our friends have noted that this obituary does not include Isaac’s final accomplishment: a turducken. What a guy.
