A tribute to a special person.
Our sweet daughter-in-law lost her beloved father this week.
I thought this would be a wonderful tribute to him.
Marco was very well know in our town.
Everyone knew him by his nickname, Marco.
The loss is felt by his family all too well.
His wife, the children and the grand-children.
Ofira gave birth two weeks before and the her loss is unimaginable.
She was very close to her father, always,
doing her best to be with him and beside him.
Even through her hard pregnancy she was always traveling to visit him.
A truly loyal child.
Marco was a special person.
He went through a lot of hardships in life but succeeded in raising a family.
He has many children and was blessed to see his grandchildren.
The pain in knowing his last grandchild didn't have the chance to meet her grandfather is very hard.
He was tired. Too tired.
Life was cruel to Marco,
but now he is resting without the pain and without the suffering.
In our language we say;
