>Happy Birthday Babushka
Today is my fiance’s 22nd birthday. It’s sad that it had to be during this tough time for her family. My mother and I have had similar situations with death being near our birthdays. It’s no good. Hopefully this doesn’t ruin her b-day every year.
So Shannon, have a happy birthday. I’m sure your grandma would have wanted it that way.
Note: My pet name is Babushka, as in a kerchief or a Russian grandmother.
>In Yiddish, a grandmother is referred to as booba.
