Nothing can prepare you.
Nobody ever anticipates the need to say goodbye.
Shevy, you seemed larger than life itself.
Life and love of life would flow forth from you like a river.
You were such a devoted Shlucha to your community.
Such a dear and genuine friend to the many who turned to you in their times of need.
A pillar of your community.
You were such a loving and devoted wife.
A real life partner, in your holy life’s work and mission.
To your precious children, you were their rock. Their everything. Their world.
No one is ever truly ready to say goodbye,
You lived life to its fullest, you gave us your all, your everything, every time.
Today, we promise to be there for your family, as you were there for ours.
We promise to look after your dear children as you watch them grow from on high.
We promise to never forget you, we are forever grateful for your friendship, your love, your smile.
We will miss you.
Rest assured, however:
The entire Jewish nation will watch over your family, and one day very soon, when we are all reunited, we will dance together with you, our dear Shevy.
Until that day, Rest In Peace dear friend.
Your family is safe.
Your community will never forget you.
You left this world a better place than you received it.
