I think of you often and have many times hoped to reconnect with you. I have such fond memories of our friendship. I’m saddened that I am reaching out during this difficult time. My mother informed me of your loss yesterday. She got an email from shule in Sydney. I’ve been thinking about your mother overnight, I have so many memories. She was always so lovely and I loved spending time at your house, I recall a sleepover and many play dates and sitting on the couch in your kitchen and your mother reading us stories. She was always SO patient! I remember your bat mitzvah so clearly and her delicious catering. She taught us how to make crumbed eggplants I remember and till this day each time I make them I think of you and your mother. As a newly wed I recall being so nervous going to the mikvah but when I walked in and saw your mother’s calming smile I immediately relaxed and enjoyed the holiness of the mitzvah. She was such an incredibly warm person.
I am sending you so much strength during this time, I hope that we can reconnect and only share in each others simchas from now on.
Wishing you and your family only simchas always.
