Marc, and Janet, thank you.
Marc -- Yes, I was reflecting on that at the funeral yesterday. We always reaffirm and emphatically embrace life, even when mourning.
My mom's obit (one error in it says she retired in 1982... she actually retired at the age of 82, in 2003): http://www.salemnews.com/obituaries/...s-Goldfield-91
Janet, do you remember when you took me to meet your mom and dad in their Brooklyn home, many years ago? Within five minutes of meeting your mom, I knew EXACTLY where you got your sense of humor!
That's a legacy to treasure for a lifetime.
