8/13/2020 10:52 PM ...now I put a ??? around the grave, and ??? and a nice big tombstone made from marble with 80 gold letters cost me one and a half million. In short my dear child! I remained a poor beggar! Every consolation is far from me but one solace remains for me! I already ordered myself a grave next to my dear Chana and paid! I want to be buried next to her!... The 27th of Shevat it was Sunday she still spoke to me I wailed and cried terribly, but 9 o'clock she asked me: my gold! Why don't you turn on a light?....... Mother! What are you talking about?...
