Irene Paranay Lambert, Deb’s mom, was born in 1936. She turned 80 this month, while in hospital being treated for a broken hip, with complications.
She died of the complications yesterday, in hospice (two days after transfer to the hospice unit), while Al held her hand.
Requiem aeternam dona eis, Domine, et lux perpetua luceat eis. (Mozart, Requiem)
I met her first at their home in Brookfield Center, Connecticut, in October or November 1984, introduced as a suitor for Deb’s hand. We were friends for 31 years.
I will miss her greatly.
