Ben

Today would have been the 20th birthday of our son Ben. Today is also his 20th Yahrzeit, the anniversary of his death because of a medical error by the gynecologist.

Psalm 23 is very special to me. It was read by Rabbi Awraham Soetendorp at Ben's funeral. Every time I hear it or read it, it brings me great comfort.

May His Memory be a Blessing

I'm sorry to hear about your loss...but happy that Ben is in Heaven. I have a son there too. He was 4 months old when he died...over 36 years ago!

I love that you light a candle for Ben.

Hugs to you Elsina!
