My grandmother died a week ago, November 23, 2009.
She was a special woman, a survivor. We began cleaning out her apartment two days ago, unlocking memories, touching her clothing, rediscovering dolls, jewelry and pictures I treasured as a child.
We leave this world alone, just our souls and deeds, without the stuff we work so hard to acquire.
May her memory be a blessing unto us, Syma daughter of Shmuel.
