A tribute



The following phrase appeared several weeks ago in  A THOUGHT FOR TODAY  (part of wordsmith.org’s http://wordsmith.org/words/today.html )

« There are stars whose radiance is visible on Earth though they have long been extinct. There are people whose brilliance continues to light the world though they are no longer among the living. These lights are particularly bright when the night is dark. They light the way for humankind ». -Hannah Senesh, poet, playwright, and paratrooper (1921-1944) 

My little sister would have been 62 today – she shared her birthday with my sister-in-law’s mother – and both of these women qualify for the above statement. I miss them both, but their stars still shine brightly.

A double-delight rose, my sister's favorite and that's what these two were: double delights!
