Suddenly, This last Thursday, she went from the wedding to the funeral.
Just moments before, she danced at her sisters son’s wedding last night like a little girl on wings. Being a devoted hard-working mother of ten children, living an extremely modest simple life, how could she be happier...? She didn’t need much, but she raised her family with fierce passion and love. She made it work despite all the very difficult circumstances, despite hardships both financially and otherwise. Being besimcha was her way of life and her ideal. This is the legacy she left for everyone.
She is now gone. Gone forever.
She arrived home from the wedding and felt an ache in her back. She hoped a warm bath would relieve her, but she was whisked away from us in a hurry. She is no longer in any pain. She passed out in the warm water, but left everyone out in the cold. No one could hold a tear back seeing the family crying, searching for their mother who left them so very unexpectedly.
We are still in shock. There are no words. There is total silence. There is a huge hole. There are tears and questions.
But! We can’t just stand there and cry.
She knew how to maneuver when there was no money, and now even more than ever we need your help so the orphaned family can continue on a solid financial foundation.
Please help our family through this very difficult time.
