Tonight’s kaddish, using Mira’s text for a household engulfed in sadness, wishing blessings on the house, is for Amanda Simmons—the precious daughter of the woman who sold Mira a rug, who read Mira’s post about how hard it is to part with the things that go with the memories. May Amanda rest in peace, and may her precious mom also find peace in the parts of Amanda that live on in her daughter, the granddaughter that a bereaved mother is raising.
