janet kohen r.i.p.

the marx sisters, purim 2003

many times i have blogged obituaries of interesting women about whom i had never previously heard. today i write with tears dripping all over my keyboard about an amazing woman that i knew well. she only died today, and the funeral will be tomorrow, so this will not be an obituary. i just wanted, ok, needed to say out loud that my friend janet was a mensch, and the world is poorer for her departure. later i might share stories of her strength and her kindness. today i mourn wife, parent, grandparent and dear dear friend. tomorrow we bury the vessel that was her body. may her soul be enfolded by the wings of shechinah.
