Erika, my condolences on your loss. What a lovely tribute to both your grandmothers.

Erika, Thanks for this moving post. There's the stereotype of the Jewish grandmother (maybe of all grandmothers)as being loving and warm and I like that you're able to tell us that sometimes your Oma was "hard to love." But clearly you did love and admire her. So sorry for your loss.
