Florence and Joseph with Meredith Hornick, October 19, 1982

I recall sitting at a funeral with my dad where the rabbi told a story of a 70-year old man distraught at the funeral of his 90-something year old mother. His rabbi asked why he was so inconsolable. The rabbi noted that his mother had lived a very long and full life in good health to the end.  The mourner replied, “Today I am an orphan.”

Today, Marc, Amy and I are orphans.
