IN MEMORIAM: My mother, Gertrude T. Adler, ob"m

I've been off the air for several weeks, due to Jewish holidays but even more, dealing with the illness and death of my beloved and sainted mother, of blessed memory. This show is about her, her Derech Eretz, and the Derech Eretz of so many people who comforted our family with their words and their tears. This show is dedicated to the loving memory of Shvartzel Tova bat Moshe Yeshayahu and Glicka, who for almost 83 years basked in the prides of her family and was an extraordinary wife, mother, mother in law, daughter, grandmother, great-grandmother, sister in law, aunt, cousin, friend and neighbor. She earned her special place in the Garden of Eden. I invite you to listen about an unusually loving and giving woman, selfless and unconditional in her love.
