Over the years, I enjoyed many family dinners and restaurants with Aunt Helen. We enjoyed discussing books and travel. I noticed whenever someone died, Aunt Helen would hug the family and say, “O bubbie”. On this sad occasion, let our family all hug and say “O Bubbie” you will be missed. With love, Geri
