ben and me...

Ben Franklin once said that "In this world nothing can be said to be certain, except death and taxes."

Equally as wise as Ben was my Grandma Edie, who passed away yesterday after a brief struggle with Pancreatic Cancer, ironically on the very day our taxes were due to Uncle Sam.

It's been a rough week (hense my absense from this blog), but I'm in the company of many relatives as we remember the classiest lady I've ever known.

Goldman, Edith (January 17, 1920 – April 15, 2006)

Beloved wife, cherished matriarch, and constant philanthropist, Edith “Edie” Goldman was a true original. She will be sadly missed and lovingly remembered by the many whose lives she touched.

An exceptional marriage of 63 years to Morris, their children are Linda Goldman Sokolove of Ypsilanti, Michigan and Bruce Goldman of Waban, Massachusetts. Loving sister of Jeanette Sandler, Milton Shaffer, William Shaffer, and the late Sylvia Goodman and Zechariah Suffers. Dear grandmother of Skyler Goldman, Adam and Melissa Sokolove, and Todd Sokolove. Great grandmother of Samantha Sokolove and Jacob Sokolove. Caring mother-in-law of Sherry Kachel Goldman and Bruce Sokolove. Generous Aunt to eleven nieces and nephews.

Edith was a life member of Hadassah. She was always happiest in the company of her family and friends. Never one to pass by a bargain, Edith loved to shop—especially for others.
