She was the light of my life…the only light I ever knew. She was loving, gentle, kind, and she gave me praise and confidence when no one else could. She was my Aunt, but also my friend, my sister until she became ill and went into an assisted care facility.
Physically, it was hard for me to travel and see her, but my prayers and thoughts were always with her. I went to see her finally the weekend of August 9th, 2009, she was resting comfortably and I felt very peaceful looking at her face. She was always so beautiful. I brushed her soft tender skin and kissed her forehead and said: “I love you,be well…I’ve missed you.” Though still asleep, I felt she could hear me…she was always very spiritual…I took solace in that.
Tearfully, my dear Aunt, I will miss you dearly along with your Mom… my Bubby- Celia Goldberg and my loving Uncle Herman.
I treasure the best of memories, in photos. Though my mind is not good, I will try to pass them on to the best of my knowledge, to my daughter to keep your memory and love alive.
Forgive me for not attending your funeral as no one called to tell me you passed, I found out on the internet. Rest peacefully, give my love to those greeting you, and may you be reincarnated into my life again. Hoping we pass each other’s path in the next 50 years. Please put in a word with God…I have had enough trauma and suffering please go easy on me, I can’t deal with much more heartbreak.
Hugs and kisses to all in your presence. Glad your gentle soul went peacefully into the night. Lighting a yahrzeit will be a pleasure.
I love you and always will….your loving niece, friend, and confidant till the end of 9/27/2009.
