IN MEMORY AND APPRECIATION
One of the greatest fears that a person faces is death. Some people try to deny it through various means. Others try to create an illusion of immortality by build- ing pyramids or other monuments. Jews face death realistically and treat it as a natural termination of life. Jewish tradition urges that the fact of death is good reason to learn to appre- ciate life, treasure existence and make the most of each day.
The Jews of the Bible faced death resolutely and learned through this honest confrontation to live with patience, courage, sympathy and dignity, to develop a sense of faith in the natural order of things and a trust in God and His superior wisdom.

A very old story makes this very point. One day a peasant took his little son to a village nearby. Along the road, they came to a fresh stream, which was spanned by a rickety old bridge. It was a bright, sunny day; the father and son made the crossing without mishap. It was dusk when they started on their homeward journey. The boy remem- bered the stream and the rickety old bridge and became afraid. The father noticed his anxiety, lifted him and carried him in his arms. The boy fell fast asleep as his father carried him over the bridge and all the way home. As the sun of a new day streamed through the window of his bedroom, the boy awakened and discovered that he was safe at home. So, too, does God bring us through the valley of the shadow of death.
