Tillie Frank, June 24, 1914 -- November 30, 2008

Tillie, my Bubbe, died yesterday morning following a day of visits from many relatives, including myself and Ethan.

If the link above works, it is a photo taken by Ethan of Virginia, Tillie, Esther and myself some months ago...

It is hard to imagine not having her physical presence, voice on the phone, attention to detail. She lived long enough to see Barack Obama elected.

I'm so sorry, but glad you got to visit her the day before.

Yes, and she was a person who was really frustrated about not having words, and they were truly escaping her...She saw Ethan's wonderful haircut and his health and love, and I promised to care for him diligently...

She was an agnostic or atheist, but I'm not. I will miss her fiercely.
