Last night was my father's Yahrzeit; a Jewish word meaning (more or less) the date upon which we recall his passing. Typically, this includes lighting a candle, and reciting a prayer.

We hosted for our Havurah, and I just barely got home from work in time. I lit the candle before the Shabbat candles were lit, and I led the services.

When it came time to recite the prayer, I barely got through it. My voice cracked, and I had trouble seeing the Hebrew from the tears in my eyes.

I think of you, Dad, daily. I wish you were still here...
