A Remarkable Synchronicity
It’s been 10 years since my second husband, Chaim Stern died. I was only married to him for about three years. But our love was remarkable, and so was the story of how we got together:
The slim, dark-haired woman sitting at the table in the Westchester brasserie was reading Pride and Prejudice. That was a prediction of possible friendship, but our lives would eventually intersect in ways we could not have predicted if you had given us infinity to do so.
But we were at the beginning of it all.
