We were thinking about you last night as we welcomed the New Year. The moment was particularily poignant as most people who were there also were there last year when you were sharing how much you were looking forward to her comming back. The activities you thought of to celebrate Tamar are such thoughtful ideas. We just donated to Mano e Mano which looks like such a worthwhile organization. We will try to make it to one of your get togethers too. With all our tightest hugs to all of you in those difficult times.

Just wanted all of you to know that you and Tamar are never far from our thoughts in our home. In fact, Tamar's picture hangs in the center of our blackboard in our kitchen where we have our favorite family photos and sayings that are of importance to us. With Tamar's picture is the Mary Oliver quote that was in the program from Tamar's memorial service: "Tell me, what is it you plan to do with your wild and precious life." A poignant reminder to live life to the fullest as your smart and beautiful Tamar did and would most certainly want us all to do.

Thinking of you as the one year anniversary approaches, with disbelief still lingering. I look forward to stopping by either Thursday or Friday evening.

In the meantime, I share a favorite poem by Henry Scott Holland which I find comforting:

All is well

Death is nothing at all,
I have only slipped away into the next room.
Whatever we were to each other, we still are.
Please, call me by my old familiar name.
Speak of me in the same easy way you always did.
Laugh, as we always laughed, at the little jokes we shared together.
Think of me and smile.
Let my name be the household name it always was,
Spoken without the shadow of a ghost in it.
Life means all it ever meant.
It is the same as it ever was.
Death is inevitable, so why should I be out of mind because I am out of sight?
I am but waiting for you, - for an interval very near.
Nothing is past or lost.
One brief moment and all will be as it was before,
Only better and happier.
Together forever.
All is well.

I think a bench is a lovely thing to do in her memory. What a great idea on those friends part.  I see so many things that remind me of Tamar on a regular basis. Sometimes it is the toss of a young girl's hair, or a throaty chuckle that reminds me of her laugh.  She was a funny, sweet, bright and beautiful girl.  Her biggest gift to me has been a reminder of how lucky we are to have children to love, even if we don't get to have them forever.

There was much more to that message, and I hope that you can see it even if in posting it 2/3 of it got cut off. If it really was cut off and you can only see what was posted, then I will quickly sum up what I wanted to say. You, her family, may never get to meet many of the people that Tamar touched, but there are a great deal of people who think about her, and whose days are brightened because of it. Her incredible habit of warming everything that she was a part of continues, and I, as well as many others, are thankful for it.

Dear Kaplan Family,

You don't know me, and I don't know you - at least not directly. To be frank, I didn't even know Tamar that well, and certainly not as well as I would have wanted to. But I know well many of those who considered her dear. I know those whose hearts beat with the same rhythm as Tamar's; those whose hearts

Dear Maya,
I appreciate your loving and descriptive entry about Tamar as a little one. From what I've heard about her, she retained her youthful energy even as she matured into a young woman of intelligence, optimism and enormous capacities. I ate a huge fresh, organic salad packed full of vegetables in her honor yesterday here on Cape Cod.
Sending my love, Julie

Dear Maya,

I hope you were surrounded by friends and family at Tamar's birthday celebration.  Our son Miles, who was a friend of Tamar's at CMC, filled us in on many of the wonderful details he remembered about their shared time together at CMC.  Tamar was loved and respected.  She was a thoughtful, kind and generous contributor to the CMC community.  She made a very significant and lasting impact on the community and on so many other's lives.  I truly hope that life gets easier for you with each passing day.  We continue to think about you and hold you and your family close to our hearts each and every day.
