'Help Sing A New Song'

From fifth-grader Hannah San Sebastian of B'nai Shalom of Olney, Maryland, comes this touching poem:

Hannah's teacher at B'nai Shalom used the poesiealbum concept in her class after my mother and I visited the students in May.  Hannah is 11 years old--the same age Jutta (my mother) was for most of the time period covered in The Year of Goodbyes.  Many thanks to Hannah for her poem and to her teacher, Pam Glikman.
