    I really don’t know where to begin. My late wife, Marsha, died almost 6 months ago and she and Rochelle spoke by phone almost every day even though the two families lived across the street from each other for the better part of 53 years. Although she and Marsha were cousins, their relationship transcended that formality. Their children grew up together, played together, went to school together and we generally were and are of one family.

    I can envision that the two women are still kibitzing. May they rest in peace.
