  1. I recognize his Neshama.
    Episcopal church or not, he is an old soul; he carried many lifetimes; he carried the blessing and the burden to make the earth full of joy.
    Our fathers and mothers were exiled to these cultures, English, Welsh, Irish, and French then killed or forced to 'convert'.
    He was filled with eternal existence.
    He thought he was Episcopalian,
    No Wonder he could not live with what was swirling around him.
    He did not understand his Neshama.
    May those of his Mishpocha recognize him when they see him again.
