DEAR MITCH, I HAVE READ ALL OF YOUR BOOKS AND LOVED THEM, BUT I JUST FINISHED READING “HAVE A LITTLE FAITH”, AND CRIED AS I READ YOUR EULOGY FOR YOUR BELOVED RABBI.. HOW TIMELY THIS WAS FOR ME. OCTOBER 2ND, I LOST MY MOTHER AT 101 YRS. OF AGE. SHE WAS SHARP UNTIL THE END AND NEEDED TO GO IN PEACE. HOWEVER,IT IS SO HARD FOR ME TO BELIEVE THAT SHE IS GONE AND THAT I CAN’T SEE OR TALK TO HER ANYMORE. I WROTE AND DELIVERED HER EULOGY, AND FROM TIME TO TIME, I STILL READ IT TO MYSELF TO SEEK COMFORT. YES, I KNOW SHE LIVED A LONG PRODUCTIVE LIFE, BUT SHE WAS MY MOTHER, AND EVEN THOUGH I WAS LUCKY TO HAVE HER FOR 67 YRS., IT STILL HURTS.
I HOPE ALL OF US WHO HAVE SUFFERED THE LOSS OF PARENTS, DEAR FRIENDS, ETC., WILL ALWAYS KEEP THE FOND MEMORIES THEY SHARED WITH THESE BELOVED PEOPLE, CLOSE TO THEIR HEARTS AND GAIN GREAT COMFORT FROM DOING SO.
KEEP WRITING TO SOOTH OUR SOULS.
LYNN ARONSON
