Kehat Finkel - 13 days ago

To Sonia, Brenda, Etti, Kenny and Michael. I wish I could explain to you how much I loved Benny, how I missed him. The family circle of sadness is your own. But I am here, thousand of kilometres from you, crying on a man I loved so much. Since I was a young child I've been told about him and I remember every moment I spent with you, with him, his kindness, his warmth, his joy of life, his courage and his endless smile. You and I knew he came from the depth of hell and how with incredible courage, he set a tremendous family, and have bitten the damn Nazis. Yes, it is his victory, you and all your children, the world he recreated. I can still clearly remember how my mother and father, who was killed when I was five and a half, loved him. They called him "Berale" - a small bear. And they said his name with so much warmth and longing. My father was 12 and he was 7, and he missed his little brother so much, the one that he looked after in the horrible snow storms, in the summer swamps. Devotion, brotherhood, connection - they had all that. I remember how he drove all night from Montreal to New York and back, with you, to meet me, I still don't know how he did it. I remember all the wonderful time we spent together. I have so much more to write about him. A few months ago, I've talked to him on the phone and he sounded so optimistic and told me he would come again to Israel and I hoped to see him again. I've just mentioned him last Saturday, this is so strange. I miss him. My heart is broken. Be strong and proud to have had this father. Katty. Sending our condolences to all the family - Romi and Sigalt. We've been blessed to have met him 5 years ago, and to spend some quality time with him and all the family. We are very sad and will always remember him with great affection.
