Yesterday was the Jewish calendar anniversary of our good friend Elli’s death. Her ashes are scattered on the gardens of Pere Lachaise so we decided it was a fitting place for us to remember her. We walked along the cobblestone lanes, climbed rough steps to the hills, and stopped at the gardens to remember the wonderful times we shared with Elli and JP, her smile, her sense of humor, and her incredible strength of character.
We framed our perambulations by seeking as many artists’ memorials as possible. This took us all over the cemetery. There were a couple we failed to find, but it was a lovely way to guide our way through magnificent place.
In the evening Jean cooked a delicious meal of her chipotle raspberry chicken breast and yam hash and we shared a quiet dinner with JP. A great end to a lovely day.
