“Sharing tales of those we’ve lost is how we keep from really losing them.”

I am going off cape now. I have decided to go for the wake today rather than the funeral tomorrow. That way I will get more of a chance to talk with my cousins and my sister Moe who flew in last night from Colorado. I haven’t seen Moe or the cousins for a long time. I tend to stay home.

Uncle Jack was a good guy.

    Hi Kat,

    Have a safe trip.

    In the Jewish tradition we belive that rembering the person by name keeps their spirit alive. At the major holidays each congregation will hold a memorial service and read aloud the names of all of their members who have passed away. We light a candle on the anniversary of their passing which burns for 24 hours in our homes to remember them.

      Hi Bob,
      I was surprised by the amount of traffic I ran into. The trip usually takes an hour and 45 minutes. Today it took 2 1/2 hours.

      The biggest surprise was on my way home. It was like a summer Sunday. Cars were bumper to bumper to go over the bridge to get off cape. I ran into traffic on the way home too but it wasn’t as bad.

      I love that Jewish tradition. It is so important to remember!!
