    Default Sister passed away last evening

    Not being too sure how I want to say this...I am the last of a huge family of Aunts, Uncles, Cousins,
    Parents and eight siblings...I am the last of the "Mohicans." At nearly 101 years of age.

    Only their offspring remain.

    Friday nightfall is the Jewish Sabbath, lasting until Sundown Saturday, the burial will be Sunday, where my sister Reba, will join her husband and many more family members.

    We knew the inevitable was around the corner, suffering from Dementia-possibly Alzheimer's...I am
    saddened by her passing, November 23, 2016, she would have been 98 years of age.

    My nephew, her son, Steven remains.

    Not much one can say, except that however much expected it is always a shock. Will you be able to go to the burial or will it be too far?
    Nick, lots to learn, late starter.

    I take this opportunity to thank all those kind enough to send me condolences.

    Getting such replies from the many who open these postings goes a long way.
