Chani Liora Rosenfield

You can read Daniel Rosenfield's "speech" at Chani Liora Rosenfield's hakamat HaMatzeiva last June. She was a very young girl who died of cancer last June.
it is powerful and sure to touch you. It provides a clear insight into the perspective of what it feels like to be a bereaved parent. You can read it at:

Dear Glen,

Thank you for this post ... truly remarkable, sadly beautiful and poignant! Certainly not unlike the bittersweet "poetry" of your writings about Nechama Liba Z"L!!! Indeed, as bereaved parents-though mourning in a strict sense-comes to an end ... grief remains our ever-present companion that clings tightly to each of us .. making the resumption of at least a degree of relative normalcy a not inconsiderable undertaking.

However, we struggle with grief and often against it on a daily basis ... lest it strangle us, as you so appropriately remarked in a earlier note for which I thank you!

It remains for me an unfathomable mystery-after all that can be said is said-that at the end of the day we are yet strong enough to count our brachot!

May this New Year enable and re-enable each of us to live life b'simcha-though we walk through the valley of the shadow ... I remain,

Sincerely yours,

Alan D. Busch
