Ben Z'L*
Dear Friends,
Today, 7/11/07, is Ben's 29th birthday.
"No matter how many years have gone by or however many are yet to come,
Ben’s death for me will always remain in the present tense. I will never
say: “Once upon a time I had a son named Ben.” I won't tell you I'm not
glad to be alive because I know I am a better person for having known and loved
him. He taught me so much. Still ... know there are moments when I am filled
with guilt it was he and not I."*
*Z'L, Hebrew: Zichron L'vrocho (May his memory be a blessing.)
