In Loving Memory of Frank Kutnicki, z”l, On The Sixth Anniversary Of A Husband & Father’s (Sudden) Death: A Musical Tribute…Commentary By Adina Kutnicki

ON this sixth anniversary, a musical tribute to my beloved from our Jewish homeland…heartfelt and entirely appropriate – “From the Light of My Eyes” -

First, its stirring words, for those who know Hebrew….

וּכבר איבדתי כל תחושה של זמן
מתגעגעת לקולך, חסרה את הליטוף
למרות שכה הרבה ממך עדיין כאן
והיא שואלת עליך בשולחן השבת
הלב מלא, החדרים ריקים ממך
אל תדאג, כי לא אשאיר אותה בחושך לבד
אף דמעה לא תנצח הבטחה

אהוב שלי, מאור עיניי
שמור עליה, שמור עליי
בדם ליבי לך אכתוב
ולא אחדל לאהוב

הלוואי שרק עשיתי אותך מאושר
אומרים תמיד היתה סביבך הילה
אתה רוצה בי חזקה עד כמה שאפשר
עכשיו אוספת כוחות לְהתחלה

אהוב שלי, מאור עיניי
שמור עליה, שמור עליי
בדם ליבי לך אכתוב
ולא אחדל לאהוב
אהוב שלי, מאור עיניי
אתה שומע בוודאי
כשהשמים נופלים
אני בוחרת בַחיים

חלמתי עלינו חבוקים בִשתיקה
התעוררתי לְצימאון
זה מפחיד לחשוב שלא אזכור את המגע
או שזה החלום האחרון

אהוב שלי, מאור עיניי
שמור עליה, שמור עליי
בדם ליבי לך אכתוב
ולא אחדל לאהוב
גיבור שלי, מאור עיניי
אתה שומע בוודאי
כשהשמים נופלים
אני בוחרת בַחיים

Readers who are familiar with the “About” tab have come across a dedication within its page. It goes without saying, this type of personalized dedication is not for nothing. It comes from the depth of one’s soul.

This blog is dedicated in memory of their father; my beloved husband. A man who believed in justice, loved Israel, was a proud American and especially grateful for the freedoms it gave his parents, after they survived the horrors of Auschwitz.

And since this blog has been in operation since June 2012, only a year and a half has passed since its inception. In this regard, this is the second year, as a blogger, that I can publicly dedicate February 20th to my beloved husband, Frank Kutnicki, z”l, of blessed memory. This is his (English calendar) yahrzeit, his date of death.

Losing a loved one is, first and foremost, a personal and family tragedy. Yet, having a blog connects one with dedicated readers from all over the world. Thanks for that.

Even so, a loss is compounded when it occurs like a bolt out of the blue, in what should have been the prime of a loved one’s life. You never really recover, but you do learn to put one foot in front of the other and adjust. A “new normal” of sorts.

Now resting on Har HaMenuchot (Mount of Rest) in Jerusalem, the following words embody the essence of a magnificent husband and father:

       Forever will be missed our beloved husband and father,                                

       Rich in the embrace of his everlasting love,                                                                           

       Always placing our needs before his own,                                                             

       Nothing but warmth exuded to all,                                                                             

      Kindly, compassionate, wise beyond measure, remaining close to our hearts.                                      

In no small realm I would be greatly remiss in not mentioning the tremendously unselfish part played by our sons over the past six years. Moving forward, without their strong shoulders, would have been a million times harder. Sans their moral (and technical) support it would have been impossible to put together this blog. They protect it from “going down”.

For the above, and so much more, am forever grateful and blessed for their loving hearts. Their father would be very proud, but hardly surprised. After all, he was their role model.

Frank, rest in peace. Dearly missed -… one of our very last pictures taken together, celebrating our son’s graduation from MIT -

 Gone, but not forgotten. Close to our hearts.

  1. Dear Adina

    As a mere subscriber to your blog, may I commiserate with you at this time, those of us that take risks are like , in a way, the real clowns, they make everyone laugh but inside they have a lot of pain, as am sure your dear family can attest to that.

    Shalom and blessings from the ends of the earth,

    Serge (Zeilik Moishe)

    • Serge, thanks for your response.

      As to the clown part, not at this address. Everything presented at this blog is very serious business, though sometimes presented in a manner which makes others sit up and take notice. There is no other way to get the messages across.

      There is not a day that goes by that Frank is not missed, regardless of everything else swirling around. I worked on many of the same issues when he was alive, and I truly feel he is cheering me on, each and every day.

  2. Precious Adina & Family, Beautifully put! You, the children are a real tribute to Frank, zal, not only in what you put to words .. most elegantly, but in who you each are and how you lead your lives. Thinking of all of you on the 5th anniversary of Frank’s passing … May his goodness, optimism and strength of character guide all those close to him in all the years to come. Our love, Rachel & Nathan

  3. Adina,
    The way to stay strong is to keep commenting on FrontPage. I live in Nebraska and have served in IDF’s Sar-El 7 times, and will return asap. I love Israel and its people, and I feel all the more connected while reading your thoughts on FrontPage. I lost my wife when we were in the prime of life — she was only 40. I knew I had to find something to live for, or I would die. Like you, I expose the truth every chance I get, and I’ve taught many young people to shoot rifles and pistols. What I’m trying to say is that the magnificent person you are is testament to what a great man your Frank was. May you be more richly blessed.

    • Shalom Webb,

      Thanks for your heartfelt response. Yes, those who have known such sorrow unfortunately can feel the pain.

      Frank supported my investigative “digging’, and in more ways than one. It started not soon after 9/11/01, but that’s another story. However, since immigrating to Israel it has been kicked up more than a notch. So in a way I am continuing with something he not only supported, but was very proud of.

      While there are always dangers associated with such “digging”, surely I have no intention of stopping now.

      BTW, keep teaching the youngsters how to use firearms for self protection. Not only is it important for Americans, but especially for Jews, wherever they are.

      Indeed, there is no place like Israel – the one and only Jewish homeland – despite its insane leadership!

      • I received my inspiration from the website Jews for the Preservation of Firearms Ownership (JPFO) . They produce fantastic written materials which I used to teach the kids about the Holocaust, and the fact that those who would disarm them also intend to murder them.

  4. I don’t know you, but I love your determination and what you have to say. I am sorry about your loss and you and your children are a testament to the upstanding character of your husband

  5. Bless you, Adina. From time to time I read your comments, and am always impressed by your erudition. The world, generally, and your world, particularly, are sadder places without your beloved husband. However, you and a select few others are beacons in the night. Keep up your courage, your spirits, and your steady stream of wisdom—for all of us.
