Posted on behalf of RivkA's Family
A note from RivkA's Family:
As her family, we know just how special RivkA is. It's no secret that she has friends from all over and from all walks of life. We are very touched by all you who have called to offer support and with offers to help. It reminds us that she is not just special to us, but to so many others.
Jackie, a friend and neighbor of RivkA's, has generously taken it upon herself to organize help for the family when needed.
If you are available to help please email Jackie your:
what times you are available. (after work hours, mornings, etc....)
and if you have a car
Jackie's email: firstname.lastname@example.org
Jackie's phone: 052-424-6149
A note from Moshe:
I am moved by the many offers of help that I am receiving, but I am also finding myself overwhelmed by them.
In addition to the time that I am spending with Rivka and tending to her needs, I am also trying to devote the time, care, and attention to our children that they need from me at this very difficult time.
I very much appreciate the constant phone calls that I'm receiving from so many people, and the outpouring of love, concern, and offers off assistance. But at the same time, I am simply innundated by them, in a manner that is difficult for me to process and that affects my availability to the children.
We do indeed need assistance, but it needs to be channelled in a way that allows me to spend the time together with my family that we need right now to support one another.
Your expressions of support and love mean a great deal to me. Please, do not stop sending them -- but if at all possible, post them here, where I can sit and read them properly at at a time during the day when my time and attention is not needed elsewhere.
If you would rather send me a personal note, please send it to email@example.com. And please forgive me if I am unable to respond to them at this time.
For all those who are offering assistance, please contact Jackie through the contact information above. And thank you so very much, from me and from the kids.
Please daven (or send happy, healing thoughts) for RivkA bat Teirtzel.
With love and optimism, RivkA
