    Life in Crown Heights is not the same. The 2 best are not here, but sometimes I see people who remind me of them…funny, loud, opinionated, helping, loving people we all adored.

    Benjy, Chanie & Faigie have so much to be gratful for…being raised by people who always did what’s right even against huge odds. No wonder the Stocks are so strong & follow their consciences and their hearsts, not local politics.

    I love my Happy Shimshon Day card! It’s on the fridge next to my grandaughter’s photo as a reminder of the two most lovable and loving people who ever lived here.

    It’s a wonderful memory, but we miss seeing them B’guf more than people can understand.They left a void which can never be filled.
