Those who are familiar with the “About” tab – adinakutnicki.com/about/ – 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.
As such, this blog has only been in operation since June 2012, a full year has not passed since its inception. In this regard, this is the first 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 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 last five years. Without their strong shoulders moving forward would have been a million times harder. Without their moral (and technical) support it would have been impossible to put together this blog.
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 – www.youtube.com/watch?v=P_r8pDziQKE.
Thank you for sharing your soul and beautiful memoriam of your beloved.
Eleven years ago I lost all that I held nearest and dearest through divorce: my husband, two young daughters, my home, my community, etc. The losses were overwhelming. I watched Holocaust movies for comfort. Only they knew the depth of my grief.
“You never really recover, but you do learn to put one foot in front of the other and adjust. A “new normal” of sorts.”
Shalom to you and yours!
Hi Adina, Thanks for sharing. Tried to call you last week. Will try again tomorrow. Love, Rachel
