Timeout for the personal

Thank You for all that you have done for us

…for being there when we woke you in the middle of the night… for being here... for strengthening us... for making us breakfast before the sun came up... for your many good words of kindness, sympathy and empathy... for telling us that we have to be strong... for telling and showing us what to do to make this loss an honored one... for your nods and smiles and pats on the back... for hugging and holding us… for sending us out to dinner… for wishing us long life... for dropping your lives and obligations at a moment’s notice, and showing up... for sending beautiful flowers and baskets of food... for calling us... and for not calling when we were talked out… for your prayers and cards…for your daavening… for providing a minyan so Thorney could say kaddish… for standing in the cold snow and helping us to bury his Mom… for bringing cheesecake, cherry pie and beef stew... for donating to hospice and to Bertha's thrift store... for wanting to help, for offering to help, and for helping…
May you merit G-d’s bountiful goodness upon yourselves and your families.
with best wishes for a year of life and of peace,
the Liebermans
