I would like to thank my on-line friends who have sent kind words via e-mail, Facebook, and this blog on the passing of my dear mum-in-law. I hope to get caught up on reading and commenting on your blogs in the next couple days.
At some point in the coming weeks, I'm going to tell you about her, a little snippet of her life story. She was a very special lady. In the meantime, I just want to share this...
Take a notebook with me,
Ask her questions about the old days,
And write down the answers this time.
She asked me to bring her a card
For her great-grandson's birthday next month,
So she could sign it
Just in case.
That would tell us to stay there,
Close beside her,
Holding her hands.
Not a phone call in the night,
Not a stranger's voice
She was already gone.
I thought we had more time.
Ja chi kochem, Babcia.
