We have spent the last couple of weeks with Siegel relatives. This past weekend was the wedding of Steven, my youngest whose grandmother, Esther, was a Siegel.
Esther passed almost 20 years ago but she still had one living Siegel sister, Bertha. Bertha and Esther shared the same birthday, October 26th. Aunt Bert almost reached her 104th birthday. It was her funeral we were recently attending.
The two sisters were extremely close and used to write each other weekly. They often vacationed together and it was Aunt Bert who would come watch the boys when Esther needed her.
October 26th is one family birthday that will always be a special day for me and reminder of 2 of the six very strong Siegel women.
Warm thoughts to all the Siegel family and Happy Birthday Siegel Sisters!
