Cross posted to Facebook earlier this week. So today marks the second anniversary, on the Jewish calendar, of Jill’s death. Everything seems a little earlier since her actual death anniversary is not until August 11. It sure has been a whirlwind of emotions and changes over the last two years. Most times I am pretty good and feel like she would be proud of how I continue to live my life. I do wonder sometimes how different it would be if she were still alive? I am super pleased that Renee is now in my life as I think Jill would very much approve of her, since she is such a mensch and sh ..read more

Tomorrow, November 15th would have been Jill's 58th birthday if she had lived just a little longer.  I know life sure is different now for me without her to direct whenever I hit bumps. I hope I am living the life she would be proud of in her absence. I am sure she has laughed hysterically at some of my missteps and blunders along the way.  She would say to everyone on special occasions,"may all your joy be pure, and all your pain be champagne!"  Happy birthday to our Jill who surely blessed my life, and many others, and loved life as much as someone possibly could in the yea ..read more

Second Yom Kippur (Day of Atonement) without Jill and this one was much much harder as I really had nothing to do to honor her this year. So during Kol Nidre (the evening  service) I basically just hummed along and cried quite a bit. The person making the pitch for the annual fundraiser was even kind enough to mention Jill by name several times and how much she had meant to the synagogue's financial health. It was quite nice. Fasting was OK but I got distracted  picking the last of the Marion Berries yesterday afternoon and then just had to have a few (LOL!). Did not even realize tha ..read more

Today was our Jill Cohen's unveiling of her grave marker. Beautiful words from the Rabbi on the values and ethics and the love she had for the Beth Shalom synagogue community and all her communities that she was part of including the NWAIDS Foundation, Radost Folk Group, Dunava choir, mets cancer groups and Hadassah. Beautiful words of Torah ( http://www.mechon-mamre.org/e/et/et2831.htm) about the value of a strong assertive direct woman who knew what she wanted and was detail oriented with everyone and everything. Thanks to Rabbi Jill Borodin for all that and her friends and family for sh ..read more

Been a while since I posted as we have just passed the ten month anniversary of her death. Her unveiling of her grave marker is on June 25th and will mark the formal period of her official mourning to be over. The new normal around here is strange. The house is very quiet. Had to put Boychick down, the 11 year old rescue Cocker Spaniel because he had a pretty big tumor growing in the back of his jaw. The doctor gave him maybe six weeks. Also trying to follow Jill's wishes and look for love again. It has proven not as easy as I thought it would! I have had several dates, one extremely serious i ..read more
