WE Will Miss You!
We were just laughing together on shabbos and enjoying ourselvs. We were planning on going to the wedding next week together. We were dreaming of going to Israel to all the kivrai Tzaddikim. You were allready thinking of going shopping to buy a present when Hashem had other plans for you, to be reunited with your beloved father who you missed so much and loved you so much. May you be a gute bete for all of us down here. May you help bring Moschiach speedily in our days and We are waiting for you to join us once again on our Shabbos visits to you.

Your Dearest Niece & Nephew and Your Shabbos Friend
