I was so sorry to hear of the passing of your father and grandfather. I had the chance to meet him at Anna's high school graduation. He was quite proud of his family. My thoughts have been with you all.

My sister Irene, Abe's wife passed away May 4th, 2014. Abe and Irene were very much in love. Abe idolized my sister. He was a perfect husband. He framed her beautiful artwork and handicraft.

I wrote this short poem - May 23, 2014

Tragically my sister died
Sadly all her children cried
Broken-hearted husband tried
To reach and follow in her place
His family told him no
It's not your time to go

If you prematurely leave this earth - you will wander through eternity and never find your love. Be patient - when it is your time and you have to go - she will come and take your hand.
