Memorials - Hawk's Eyrie
It's all about releasing your inner sociopath
A friend of ours, Nailiah, died last Fall. There was a memorial for her tonight. I never knew her as well as I would have liked, and now people's memories are all we have left of her. It makes me sad that the details of her death are what is immortalized about her online, rather than the warm person she was.

Her family was at the memorial tonight, and it was nice to meet them. She was religious, and they did an opening and closing prayer in Arabic. Listening, the cadence of the Muslim prayers reminded me of the cadence the Cantor gave the prayers during the High Holiday days. I'm not religious; saying the Mourner's Kaddish for my brother didn't help me at all. However, after I came home, I spent a lot of time finding an audio track of the Mourner's Kaddish that reminded me of my youth. It felt right to do that for her. Perhaps the difference in doing this for her is that she actively believed, while my brother did not.

May peace be upon her.
