A few months ago I traveled to NY with a group of women from our community in Mequon Wisconsin. The purpose of our trip was to visit the resting place - the Ohel of the Lubavitcher Rebbe and to visit the Jewish sites in Brooklyn.
On Monday, we designated time to visit the 911 Memorial.
Monday was the 23rd day of Elul, the Yahrtzeit of the Jewish victims of 9-11.
As you can imagine the women were very moved and touched by what they experienced there. The space, atmosphere and the waterfalls engraved with the names of thousands of brave men and women is remarkable.
We went to the first memorial, recited Tehillim and reflected and discussed our feelings standing at this location and then we walked over to the 2nd memorial.
As we were standing and reflecting on what happened there and the magnitude of the loss we were approached by someone who said to us, that he was there with his parents and family members and they had just said Kaddish for his dear sister, Nancy.
As you can imagine this took our visit to the next level, it was humbling to meet your family and to hear a first hand account about Nancy. Yaakov then shared with us about Nancy and her passions in life. A few women spent some time visiting with you and were so impressed by your dedication, determination and pride and all that you shared about her.
I personally have been to the 911 Memorial previously, but the powerful meeting with your family touched me in a very profound way, and I know that on my next visit, Nancy will be the first person that I will visit.
Yaakov then gave us a beautiful and very meaningful book about Nancy, it gave us a glimpse into her incredible, adventurous and committed life. It was special to read the reflections from her family and friends. Thank you for sharing this with us.
with much respect,
