Iris and Steven Pastor’s youngest son Louis and his wife Joia are celebrating the birth of their baby girl, Remi. Our beloved columnist and former editor Iris now has seven grandchildren. Louis is originally from Cincinnati. He and his family now live in Brooklyn.
On the first weekend of 2020, Iris and Steven, originally of Cincinnati, who now live in Tampa, Florida, were in Short Hills, New Jersey to attend the bat mitzvah of their oldest granddaughter, Sophie, daughter of Frank and Julie Cohen.
Sometimes, less is more. I’m sure you all get that. Hence the brevity of this week’s newsletter.
Our family has two milestone events this week.
The first one occurred just 11 hours shy of the new decade. Our youngest son and daughter-in-law gave birth to an adorable baby girl on December 31st.
Our oldest granddaughter will be celebrating a Jewish rite of passage - her Bat Mitzvah - tomorrow.
Our hearts are filled with gratitude for the blessings in our lives.
Here’s wishing to you and those you love an abundance of joy and many blessings in 2020 too.
