“Life’s but a walking shadow”

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.
