Allan Rakoff (my grandfather): July 7, 1918 – September 1, 2003.
A very strong, generous, and loving man. I’m so thankful that I matured enough to appreciate his life before it ended. No more blogging until after the memorial.
Photos, clockwise from top: doing a traditional Russian/Jewish dance, which is way harder than he makes it look; dancing with my mother, Sherrie; showing off in 1976; with his wife of over 60 years, my Grandma Vickie. The top 3 photos were taken at my parents’ wedding in 1967.
