A very special woman

Stuart Rosenthal, Publisher

Editor’s note: Just five months ago, my dear father passed away at the age of 93. In this space in the April Beacon, I ran the eulogy that I gave at his funeral. Little did we know that the stubborn cough my Mom had at Dad’s funeral was apparently the same pneumonia that he died of, and she recently succumbed to it and its complications as well. I did not expect to be writing another eulogy so soon, and no doubt you were not expecting to read one. Nonetheless, I hope you don’t mind if I share it with you now.
