Our Beloved Bubbe

My husband's mother passed away unexpectedly yesterday. Mitch remembers her most as his #1 fan on the sidelines of his soccer games as kid screaming "GOOOOO MITCHELL!!" at the top of her lungs. She was definitely an encourager! A few months backed I checked with her to make sure I had all of her family's favorite recipes and she assured me I did plus she sent me a few "newer" ones she liked. I am glad I asked as all of my Jewish recipes and cooking skills are from her!

We are headed back East to be with family so I will not be blogging for a week or two.

Mitch,

I'm so incredibly sorry for your loss. I know we weren't the best of friends, but that doesn't stop my sorrow for you and your family right now.

With deepest regrets,
Ingrid

Camille said...

Thank you, Ingrid! We appreciate your comment and kind thoughts towards our family.

Mitch, Camille, Sarah, and Ella

Grandma said...

So sorry to hear about your loss. It's even harder when there are many miles between you and family.

Our prayers are with you all.

Thinking of you! I'm so sorry for your loss. Sounds like she was an amazing woman.

Camille said...

Thanks so much, Bonnie!

Erin, she was that mystical creature of a New York Jewish Mother/Grandmother, which in my book made her one of the most unique people I have ever met! I really didn't have time to get to know her very well, but I still feel a great sense of loss, especially that my kids won't get to know her in person. Thankfully, Mitch does a fantastic impersonation of her accent and has many wonderful stories to share throughout the years.
