I checked my email today and much to my chargin, there was a death notice for Mrs. Stark. Well, hello, I'm Mrs. Stark and so is my mother-in-law. In fact, a dear friend called to express condolences, which only heightened the anxiety.
Fortunately, it wasn't a notice for either my mother-in-law or me. But unfortunately, it was a death notice for a member of our community, a lactation specialist who I once asked a "same-last-name" discount from. Didn't get the discount, but was a happy customer nevertheless.
May the family of that other Mrs. Stark be comforted with the mourners of Zion and Jerusalem. Amen.
