After yesterday’s overwhelming Sunday Service, we had one final, formal Memorial for my father, at the church my mother attends. As I mentioned before, the Deacon was my high school play director and his very personal speech really put me at peace with not only everything that’s happened over the last few weeks, but questions I’ve had for the last few years about life.

No fried noodles for me, but Lotus Cafe has always been one of my family’s go-to Chinese restaurants in Bergen County.

The latter was the only vegetarian option, so we got Abe his own special dish as well.

Along with my pancake pork appetizer, I ate all of this…
