be past the Shloshim, the thirty days, and thus you'll only have to sit one hour and rend the vest and coat on the _left_ side and light one lamp for one day. And naturally say Kaddish for 11 months. She died and was buried on the 6th day of the month of Nisan and Kaddish has to be said morning and evening until the 6th of next Adar. Write down the date. I'm writing the Hebrew date because it's standard, because it always falls differently in the normal reckoning. Our blessed dad's Jahrzeit is Kislev 14 and our bl. mom's must be held on Nisan 6.
During her illness she was at ?? and she exhaled her kindly soul there, too. No matter how painful we found her death, I was so affected that it wasn't until they took her coffin out that my tears started, even though I was there at the final moments, and I was the one who shut her eyes. The knowledge that she did not suffer, and that the good Lord gave her a long life, eases our pain. The Everlasting grant that from now on we need only write good news to each other, and I hope that our dear beloved mother up there in Heaven will ask the Almighty for her children to no longer be poor, because it is time that our remaining lives be happy, in health and well-being, amen.
Love to all of you,
P.S. I can also provide some good news: at Purim, our older sister Rózsi gave birth to a son.
