Love of a lifetime

I had the unqualified blessing of living with Rachel Avnery for 58 years. Last Saturday I took leave of her body. She was as beautiful in death as she was in life. I could not take my eyes off her face.

I am writing this to help myself accept the unacceptable. I beg your indulgence.

If a human being can be summed up in one word, hers was: empathy.

Uri Avnery's moving tribute to his companion of 58 years--fellow peace activist, journalist, educator, photographer--Rachel.
