Dear Auntie, and Dear Dad,
Dear Grandma n Grandpa too,
I finally made it to see you....IT may have taken me about
seventeen long, long years..but, I made it, to say how much I
cared...and that I came, and visited you there!
I placed a stone up on your place...
and hoped you knew I'd seen your space!
I hope to see you all , many more times,
and tell you "I love you", that you're
on my mind.
I was elated to see you there,
all in a row, where you all shared...
the places that they laid you to rest...
My favorite family people,
Always the best!!
Just know, that I will visit , and
I send you my love...
for you gave me that...
and everything else above!!
To my Father Dr.Sidney Katz P.H.D., My Auntie Helen, My Grandma
Lena, and my Grandpa Ignatz Katz!

I went to visit my family's grave sites...I hadn't had the chance until seventeen years later...and it was such a nice and wonderful happy feeling to know that I had finally gotten the chance to see them!!
I got to talk with them..and I had even got to see photos of my family before visiting out there with them.... (My aunt had a toga dress on, when she was a bit younger...She looked really awesome!) I had never seen her like that before in my life! The Secret life of Family Members! LOL! Who knew!!!??
But, they are all buried at a Jewish Cemetery, and well, I had such a grand time seeing them!!!
I placed a stone on their graves to say that "somebody who loves/cares about that person, was there!" (that is the basic meaning regarding the stones!)
I also placed some on a few for people who had survived and or perished in the holocaust as well. (They might not be MY decendants..but, I feel that we are ALL related! NO matter what background or color, or religion or culture we just happen to be.!!)
I care about them, very much too!
It is also nice, that in this visit with my cousins... that I keep learning more about my father... (who died in 1989....from depression as well as emphyema) .that people had learned from him..and they were not only inspired by him..but, he taught them things in life..and there were things that I didn't even know or was aware of!!
Always ask about your family members...so you can learn about yours...BE CURIOUS!!!!
and LET OTHERS TELL and or SHARE with you...about YOUR family MEMBERS!!!
You Really do learn ALOT!!!
Peace, love and light!!
