Still thinking of you every single day. I am happy now and life is so good. I wish you were here. It seems strange to me that you were not the first or last person I knew who passed early, really there was so much I didn't even know about you, yet it is you who I remember all the time. I felt selfish for missing you and still do, but I'm slowly getting over that. It's not my fault that I'm remembering you, it's yours. Your spirit is so full of life that it seems you can never completely die. You will stay with those who knew you forever.

I'm sure you're flying with the horses now. Hope you're having fun.

I remember that when we got the news, we were on the science olympiad trip. That day was one of the worst in my life. It didn't matter how many medals we won, because in the end, we had lost Shoshana.

Shoshana was probably the only person who liked Harry Potter as much as I did, we'd often have playful arguments over who knew more.

This year, science olympiad nationals are in chicago, the place where she was given as a gift to God. And when I go, I'm competing for her.

Hello Tina,

I am never done cleaning areas in my house and seem to locate negatives in all sorts of places! Since I am never sure what copies I have given you, I am sending this picture of Shoshana for your album. I shot this with my "new" minolta 35 mm. camera while at the old JCC playground. If you want a much larger scanned file I can download it to a file sharing site for you.

I think of you and your family often and wish you all well.

I made myself a promise a long time ago, years in fact, that when I got my driver's license one of the first trips I would take would be to see Shoshana, on my own. Now that the day has arrived, I find my memory of her resting place sorely lacking.

A weird request but I was hoping to get directions on how to find Shoshana so I could keep my promise and catch up my old friend on what insanity the world has become without her.

Always missing you Shoshana,
Smadar Ronen

[Once you enter Austin Memorial Park on Hancock at Bull Creek you keep veering left (not sharp lefts). As you get to the point where Hancock's overpass rises up over Mopac, you'll see a 3 foot high pedestal holding a sink near a juniper (it is Jewish tradition to wash one's hands when leaving the graveside). If you look southwest (toward where Hancock rises over Mopac), you'll see (about 30 feet away) a young oak tree with various objects hanging from its lower branches. Shoshana's grave is under that oak. We have planted a garden on top of it.]

Today marks the fifth anniversary of Shoshana's death and next Wednesday marks the fifth anniversary of Shoshana's death on the Jewish calendar. We are asking during this week all her friends to post telling us what the feel on this anniversary and how it effects them as they are about to take the next major step of their lives.

I wanted to write today but wasn't sure what to say. I guess if I could say anything to you, Shoshana, I would say thank you for touching my life in such a profound way. I only knew you for a short time, but I can confidently say that I have thought of you every day for the past five years, and I do not worry that you will ever be forgotten. These five years have taught me that even though nothing stays the same, everything will always be okay in the end. I've also learned that I never know when the end will be, so I try to live each day to the fullest and treasure every moment. We move on and reclaim joy and happiness in our lives, but we do not forget. Your spirit lives on. Thank you for your life.

I never really did get to know her, but what i did know from my other friends was she was a kind, likable person. I remember her from my English class, especially her competitiveness. I still remember when I learned that she passed away. I honestly didn't know what to say or think, and for that I felt terrible. I didn't know how to really comprehend someones death, someone who I was just barely beginning to know and someone I wish I could have been friends with now. My condolences and prayers go out to the Weintraub family.

I'm glad Lydia posted the link to this website. It's unusual that "Annabella Cavello" now returns search results other than this page, on Google. So much has changed, since seventh grade, and yet, so little has. I remember lying on the carpet at Laura's house munching on cookies and giggling with L and Shoshana as Laura's dad attempted to convert a VHS of his and his wife's wedding to DVD. I wish that Shoshana could join us through the hell of APs and the fervor of graduation. She will live forever in our hearts.
