13+ years of Shabbat dinners with Bubby and Oscar, Seders, celebrating family joys together with our step-mom and my dad...those wonderful times will always be in my heart. I will always be grateful for the care and love Celia gave to her husband, my dad, and the way she embraced her step-family. May her memory be a blessing.
