If I could have chosen a second mother it would be you. Although I am not technically related I instantly felt you would love and protect me throughout my life. Mark and I have a lot in common. The four Babchick and four Brotman kids are blessed to have the parents we were born to. As rabbis’ say we are not dead as long as we are remembered. You have four generations alive and many friends and loving pets as your legacy. You have made a difference in so many lives. Janet and I will always be there for Pop Pop and your kids and their kids and of course for the dogs. Sending you lifelong gratitude for taking care of Marissa when she was born. Todah Robah in Hebrew...a job well done.
