4/15/2009 Sorry, I don't know whether this is Hebrew or Yiddish. I found this message written on the back of an old business card (it was from my grandfather's furniture store, which closed in the 1960s) when I was cleaning out an elderly relative's home. Anna Samachson, the name in English, is my grandmother and namesake. She died before I was born. View the post with its 17 responses
