17 May Like We Needed To Do It Again…
Today was sunny and warm for the first time in a long time in Toronto.
I’d like to think today was that way because my dad made sure of it.
We needed the sun.
Today was my dad’s unveiling.
An unveiling is, in the Jewish tradition, pretty much like a second funeral. We stand around the grave, say some words, a few prayers, then have a reception with lots of food. What’s a Jewish get together without food?
It was nice to have the sun shine down on us today.
For those who don’t know, my dad passed away last August and today we “unveiled” his tombstone.
My mom said the stone looked nice.
I’m sure it did. I didn’t look at it.
I’m sure I will soon.
