Hal & Annabel Sacks

Newly married and reporting to a Korea–bound ship, I dreaded coming to Norfolk, known for its supposed lack of hospitality to sailors. Had anyone suggested a halfcentury ago that we would make our lives here; that our children and grandchildren would be born and would remain here to make their lives; that there would be at one time four generations of Sacks in Tidewater, we would have suggested counseling. Had anyone suggested that Annabel and I would be in a position to give back to Jewish causes through a philanthropic bequest, one which will keep our children and grandchildren involved, we might have been incredulous. But here we are and here we remain, honored to be able to serve, and privileged to be able to perpetuate the generosity that we learned here.
