    The tree planting I never thought about -- and oddly enough it wouldn't be in Israel.  He and his wife loved staying with my parents when they were on the West Coast.  My Mom still has a gorgeous yard with over 100 rosebushes and amazing plantings.  He loved sitting out there with my Dad -- they both called it paradise.  There's a place on the side that lost a tree -- I think my Mom and I could plant one there for him and send a picture, with other pictures and memories to his son.

    What an amazing recommendation.  Thanks again, TheFatLadySings.

      I messaged you something about peculiar food customs related to Passover including the relevant timing in my household as the holiday approaches. I am rather compulsive about my Passover clean up though I don't know I would be if a parent passed away.

        but I really am fascinated by food customs and never find them peculiar.  Since I'm Irish/mongrel -- I often make foods off season or "religious calendar."  I love hamentaschen -- and only this year learned about the history and timing of Purim.  I'm a huge fan of Jewish cooking -- I just need to develop the touch.  

        This diary is a treasure which I will return to often for advice on consolation, food and life.
