As Tisha B’Av (the 9th of Av) approaches, a universal day of mourning for Jews around the world, Dan and I also prepare for the end of the year of aveylut, the year of mourning for Esther. It seems so much more than a year ago Esther died quietly in her sleep, and hardly a day goes by without us remembering her twinkle in her green eyes, and her ready smile.
I found this cassette while cleaning the car today and has a snippet from Bill Coull’s Jazz show on CKUA that our family loved. CKUA is a community funded radio station in Alberta and Bill was a great innovator and supporter of jazz. I had the honour of donating an hour of his show to Dan and Esther before he retired.
