I went to check my yahoo email and almost missed an email half way down the page. It was from a man who I know through a close friend. I saw this close friend for the first time in two years, only last Winter. She and her husband(2nd marriage) just had a daughter and she is about a year and a half now. She also has two older sons, 18 and 25.

Her name is Natasha. She is one of the most compassionate, calm and loving woman I have ever known. And so is her mother….or so she was.

The email said that Natasha’s mother had been in a coma for the past few days and she passed mid day on Thursday.

Since the day I met her mother she and I had a special connection. I used to spend a lot of time at her house and have lost touch over the years. They live in Pasadena, about 30 minutes from where I live now. She lived in Pasadena. She was a true socialist. Not a Marxist. her grandparents were part of teh Russian Revolution. Her politics and stories were wonderful and powerful. Her passion was contagious.

She will be missed.

Natasha and her mother were extremely close. They were probably as close as a mother and daughter can be. I am grateful for having known her mother, Harriet, and for the gentle soul she raised in my friend Natasha. Natasha is my one female friend that I can lay next to and hold and feel our souls communicate. She is one of my soul sisters and my heart breaks for her.

I love you my sister Natasha and I will be there to help your mother cross over.

Blessings to Harriet n her journey.

      Thanks sweetie. We just got back from Natasha’s. She seems ok, but says her heart is torn in bits. It was really nice to see her. She is Jewish so today was Shiva. Shiva is when the immediate family sits and mourns and people visit to show their support and love.

  2. Contact info

    Could you send me (email) Natasha’s email or phone? I liked talking to Harriet a lot.
