She Served The Most Wonderful Tea From India

In family life, food, in the neighborhood on December 23, 2009 at 9:20 pm

I am one who was shocked at the news of Leila’s passing.  I just went to her blog to see how she was doing.  I met Leila while both of our sons attended Bonnie’s class at the preschool in Oakland.  We went to the park together a few times and to her house for a play date.  I remember she served the most wonderful tea from India.  I spotted an Indian store the other day and thought I might go inside to try to find that tea.  I remember right after 9/11, seeing the photo of her and her husband in front of the World Trade Center. We had just a few good times together.   I left the Bay Area right before she was diagnosed.  She told me about it over the phone shortly after we moved.  We kept touch a little through our blogs after that.

I am so, so sorry for your loss, David, Joseph & Jacob.
