Babushka


My Babushka died today. She was 86 years old. She was a strong, believing woman who raised her three children alone after my grandfather died in 1960, just eight years after they had arrived in the United States from Austria. She had some fascinating stories. We will miss her very much.

I'm flying back to the States on Monday. Jeremy will meet me at JFK and then we'll travel together to Valley Cottage, NY, for the funeral. I'm sad that she never got to meet him, but I know that she would have liked him.
