The Final Chapter

A woman who has resided next door has passed away. It is tough to say goodbye to a person you have known your entire life. She kept her illness quiet but it was known in the area. Why she worked almost until the end is unknown.

Then again how we write that last chapter is up to us.

For the second time Rav Roov will have to deliver a eulogy for someone he has known for decades. Most think it is best to have a clergyman who knew the deceased perform this function. The sermon is more personal and moving. In those cases it was the request of the deceased themselves who knew the final chapter was near.

She likely worked till the end because sometimes work can save one's sanity.
