My cousin....

Created by Lisbeth on 14/03/2016
Ileana was my cousin and my Godmother. But more than that she was a wonderful, caring, smart and quite funny woman. I still can't believe she's not here with us. I have the fondest memories of Ileana and my childhood. Growing up our family spent every birthday and holiday together. Sit down dinners at our grandmothers house, though chaotic were always fun.Fighting over who would dry or wash the dishes and then watching Lawrence Welk are just a few special memories. Ileana and I got to see one another get married which are memories I hold dear. Ileana, Rachel and Russ sent my daughter the most thoughtful books from around the world and all the books are now in a special place.I know from experience that life is hard and loss is even harder but I also know that the people who leave us are never far away. They are always in our heart. And Ileana will always have a special place in mine.

I know that each night when I look up to the sky and see the stars that Ileana is one of those diamonds. She will be missed deeply but never forgotten...... With Love Lisbeth Vaughan Rozenfeld
