Alli Bak Itzkowitz – The last of her generation

http://www.legacy.com/obituaries/dallasmorningnews/obituary.aspx?n=Alli-Bock-Itzkowitz&pid=186445752

A month after I met Alli Bak Itzkowitz for the first time, she passed away.

Alli was my mother Raele (Ray) Zeldin Rabinowitz’s first cousin.

They never met!

When Alli and I met in North Dallas in July, we shared stories, laughed, held hands and exchanged Yiddish rhymes

Here are photos from my visit:
