OT Sad news
Hermine asked me to pass on to the other sans lists. Most of you know Norma Lewis. If anyone needs her home address please e-mail me email@example.com.
Norma asked me to tell you that her husband Chuck, has gone on that
very mysterious final adventure. He did not suffer.
He was a very fine fellow, I can attest to that, and because Norma
has lived in the same place for a long time, she is not alone, she is
well surrounded by the people whom she has befriended over the years,
and has at least one daughter living very nearby.
the funeral will be at Mt Sinai
right by forest lawn/Mt Sinai Griffith park 3:15
and norma will be sitting Shiva, at home for at least two or three
days. It is customary to visit, to bring sweet things, which should
be Kosher. In order to make sure something is Kosher, (for those of
you who may be out of practice) you need to get something which is
marked Kosher or which comes from a certified Kosher bakery or food
store. I am sure Norma would not be offended if it were not really
Kosher, but i am just telling you what the ceremonial forms are like.
What I would do if I were coming and did not know where to get a
Kosher food, would be to telephone ANY rabbi where you live right
out of the yellow pages and ask, where should I get this, food to
bring or send to a person sitting SHIVA------ and also one can have
such things delivered to her home.
for example, i did a search and came up with this:
anything on this page would be nice to send.
If anyone from Los Angeles is coming, I found this page
which has a bunch of kosher bakeries.
write to me for more details, her address and so forth. It is good
for her to feel the opposite of ALONE at this time.
