My bubby Irene was a true force to be reckoned with; a tiny woman with a giant personality. Her positivity and unique zest for life could literally light up the darkest room. Growing up, I was extremely lucky to have such a solid relationship with her, as she called me her "zeez kind" (sweet child in Yiddish) and never let me forget how loved I was. My daughter was fortunate enough to be able to soak up an abundance of bubby love; however, my son never got to meet her. She was so excited about my pregnancy, but unfortunately passed before he was born. After an extremely traumatic delivery, I believe she came to the hospital to, quite literally, bring me back to life in the form of a young, soft spoken, and compassionate nurse named Irene. My bubby meant the world to me, and I'd been searching for months for a way to commemorate her. This "love" necklace in her handwriting pretty much sums it up! The emotion I get from this piece of jewelry is indescribable. Thank you so much for helping me find a way to keep my bubby so close!
