Today is the anniversary of my father’s passing.
So, it is our custom to light a candle that burns for 24 hours.
It ‘s interesting how much I feel his presence today…
I thought I would write a bio poem (we are writing them in class…so it’s on my mind) in his memory…
Passionate, Determined, Family-Oriented, Generous
(hmmm…just 4 adjectives…I can’t do it…I’m taking poetic license)
Loving, Creative, Intelligent, Patriotic
Father to Larry, Linda, Howard, Stephen, Joanne, Ricky, and Nancy
Lover of his Family, his Country, Tradition, Singing, and Writing Poetry
Who Felt the Need to Impart his Wisdom
Who Feared War, Antisemitism, and Anonymity
Who Gave the World the Gift of his Book of Poetry
Who Would Like to See his Children and Grandchildren Successful
Who was Proud to have Traveled the World with his One True Love, Eleanor
