life is for living...

Me, my sister, my grandma, my aunt, my dad, my cousin and my dad's childhood family doctor and grandpa's close friend and tennis partner.



Whirlwind weekend #48 for 2010 but, sigh, definitely well worth it. I'm tired and groggy and probably not at all coherent this morning, but I really can't even imagine having been here in the bay while the rest of my family was at my Grandpa's funeral - even if that meant traveling across the country for a 35 hour visit.

There were so many touching moments this weekend and so many thoughts swirling through my mind about life and death and family and I hope I get a chance to share some of them soon.

I'll leave you with this little nugget...My favorite part of the rabbi's little talk was his emphasis on the fact that life is for living and while it is hard to lose a loved one, it is important to continue on with living life and enjoying the loved ones we still have.

I couldn't agree more with your (the Rabbi's) little nugget...and I'm pretty certain that your grandpa lived his own life fully! Glad you made it home safe and sound!
