Unexpectedly, and far too swiftly, my mother passed away, and today was her funeral.  My sister, Ruth Jakubowski, a Baltimore County Circuit Court Judge, asked me to deliver the eulogy on behalf of the family.  This morning, I delivered this eulogy in her honor.

While reserving my right to retract this post, I have decided — at the end of the day — to post my eulogy to her in hopes that it inspires you, the reader, to live each moment to its fullest until your very last breath, just as my mother did.

In the one-year mourning period that follows, please forgive me if I don’t blog for a while with quite the intensity I have in the past.

Thanks for reading, and for your continued support.
