This is my precious and wonderful Mother. Mom was loved by so many people as she was an incredibly caring, loving, elegant, capable, good hearted woman. She survived the holocaust and went on to rebuild her life in America with my Dad. Mom always had a way of seeing the good in others and uplifting people's spirits. Knowing my Mom, she tried to put the car back in park as it was rolling so the car would not hurt anyone else rather than get herself out of the way and save her own life. Mom took loving care of my Dad who contracted alzheimers and parkinson's for almost 15 years. She was an exemplary mom, wife, grandmother, great grandmother, landlord, loyal friend...whatever relationship it was, she knew how to make people comfortable, loved, accepted. Mom, you will be greatly missed by everyone who knew you. I love you dearly.

It says in the Talmud in Moed Katan 28a that says "A person who dies a "sudden death" over the age of eighty (80) is called the "Kiss of Heaven" - (and this comes only to very holy souls)
