I have received a special request from one of our dear readers. This family had a beautiful daughter that Hashem took from them. She obviously reached a very high spiritual level and a level of Tikun that we would all love to come close to. The losing of such a tremendous person in the family is extremely sad, but as I have said many times is it not necessarily bad. This is not the real world and when we see a very righteous person reach as high as can be achieved and taken to the real world, it is actually a very happy occasion for the one who reached such closeness to Hashem. That doesn’t make it any easier for those left behind, since the pain of missing such a wonderful person is great.
I ask all my readers to join me in commemorating the 2nd Yahrzeit (the annual anniversary of the passing of a Jew) of this Tzaddekes, Kayla Rus bas Bunim Tuvia, A"H. Here is the touching request made by her mother Rachel:
Tuesday night/Wednesday is 22 Elul, which marks the 2nd Yahrzeit of my beautiful daughter. Most of you know that she was a Tzaddekes. She held onto her falling-apart siddur until her last day in this world. She davened constantly for others, never forgot to say "thank you" and "have a nice day" to everyone from her family to the door guard at the blood lab. She was funny, goofy, a talented dancer, fiercely loyal to Hashem and His Torah, and chutzpahdik enough to tell you if you weren't doing your best to serve Him. There is a lot less holiness in our family now. As hard as I have tried, I cannot do enough to pick up the slack. We need Moshiach. I need my beautiful girl back. What are you going to do today to help us out? Please learn some Torah, say some Tehillim, eat and make a bracha, do a mitzvah, take on something for Teshuvah, be more careful with dressing modestly, and take on Shabbos early, l'iluy nishmas Kayla Rus bas Bunim Tuvia, A"H, on Tuesday night/Wednesday Elul 22 and every day until Moshiach comes!
