    Jack, I regret that I personally did not know your beloved sister Miriam.

    According to Jewish tradition, her soul now begins its journey back to God.

    As you mourn her loss, I hope that your memories of her will be a blessing
    and a strength to you.

  5. Dear Jack, please accept my condolences on the passing of your sister... a sincere loss for you, I am certain. As my aging mother says, "Do not wait to do what you want or need. Do it now."
