My heartfelt sympathies to Levine's family. She was a one of a kind. She and Stan were 2 of my favorite people when I worked at Coates in OKC. Levine made the best chocolate cake in the world. She knew I loved it and always made it on my birthday, or when she just thought I needed it. Levine was a fabulous cook and everything she ever made was wonderful. I have the fondest memories of Levine during my time in OKC. She was a rock in the office and was not rattled by much. What you saw is what you got. She loved her family dearly and was proud of her grandchildren. She will be missed. My thoughts and prayers are with you all at this time. Sincerely, Elaine
