 A couple of weeks ago I wrote an article for our local paper about what happens at a Jewish funeral, how we mourn and how we bury . It was a guide for people who may not have gone to a Jewish funeral before. I wrote it because we have had a lot of deaths in our small Jewish community lately. Now, I hope we experience no more for a long time. We need time to heal ourselves. We live in a paradise here. Our weather is great, we don't slip on snow. We don't have frozen water pipes. Life is good. We should remember this . I'm going to take a deep breath,look around at all that I have to be thankful for and look forward to a bright , sunny, humid day tomorrow. Sounds like a plan.

Don't quite know how this got to me but it was on the top line of my computer (not in email) But I really enjoyed it. I truly admire you.

Everything sounds so wonderful Leona. Venice will seem boring . I would want to move to Portownsend where the kids are living. All sounds great . Is there?
