I want to thank you all for the unbelievable outpouring of blog comments, emails, phone calls and facebook posts/messages. It has been so beautiful and heartwarming. Speaking only for myself I want to tell you that although I am not responding to them I am taking them all in. It is just too hard for me to talk or even write right now.
That being said, we have heard people’s desire to gather sooner rather than later so although we will have the memorial on June 30th (more on that in a minute) we are inviting people over to Lucy and Leon Rosenblatt’s house this Saturday. Some people call this calling hours. In Jewish tradition it would be like sitting Shiva. It will be just an informal time where any of you who want and are able, can stop by. This will be from 2pm to 6pm at 286 Steele Road in West Hartford, CT. I know this is last minute for a lot of you so please do not stress if you are unable to stop by. And if you are from outside of CT and need to make a choice about when to make the trip, the memorial is definitely the one you should choose.
The memorial service will be at Charter Oak Cultural Center in Hartford on Saturday, June 30th. We have not set the exact time yet but it will be in the afternoon. I believe I mentioned this before but if you visiting from out of state, and we hope you do, please let us know if we can help with arrangements.
