Hi Eric, it’s Rabbi Grumbacher, my sincerest condolences. She was always such a kind and lovely lady.

Hi all - in case you are unfamiliar with the Jewish people, they are not known for their timeliness. So we will be waiting here for a bit before the service begins.

Psalm 23: The Lord is my Shepherd; I shall not want. He has me lie down in green pastures, He leads me beside the still waters. He revives my soul; He guides me on paths of righteousness for His glory. Though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I fear no harm, For you are with me ... Surely goodness and mercy shall follow me all the days of my life, And I shall abide in the house of the Lord forever.

Kel Maleh Rachamim (Prayer of Mercy) God, full of mercy, Who dwells above, give rest on the wings of the Divine Presence , amongst the holy, pure and glorious who shine like the sky, to the soul of Eileen, for whom prayer was offered in the memory of her soul. Therefore, the Merciful One will protect her soul forever, and will merge her soul with eternal life. The Everlasting is her heritage, and she shall rest peacefully at her lying place, and let us say: Amen.

This was a beautiful service, Eric. All the stories show how so very multi-dimensional Eileen was, excelling at everything: motherhood, friendships, career, community service, hobbies, you name it, she was excellent and had the right friends and the right company for each of her interests. She was smart until the very end and you are right that she remembered everything about her friends and her friends' friends. I hope to be like her in so many ways.
