Today was Claire’s memorial service (known as the matzevah) marking nearly one year since she passed away in October 2006. It’s also been a year since I visited the mausoleum. The service is for immediate members of the family, though Ambie and I were invited by Claire’s surviving sister. It was brief and lovely. I cannot believe it’s been a year already. Claire’s sister invited Ambie and I for brunch soon. I’m looking forward to it.
