In December of 2008, Rabbi Marcey Wagner conducted my mother-in-law’s graveside service with extraordinary grace, empathy and stoic endurance for the wind driven icy rain that compounded our misery.
Her steady presence and beautiful voice soothed us. Her kind words of remembrance for our “warrior woman” holocaust survivor were especially meaningful and deeply moving and fortified our spirits amid the surreal backdrop.
We shall never forget her kindness and her standing tough against the elements - a fitting tribute to our brave Jadzia who had endured so much.
Rabbi Wagner officiated at my Mother’s funeral in 2006. My Mother’s death was very sudden and none of us were prepared for it in any way whatsoever. The Rabbi gently walked us through the entire process and helped us planned what was needed from beginning to end. She was truly our guiding light during this most turbulent time.
The graveside service was absolutely beautiful. The Rabbi spoke so movingly about my Mother and her words were so loving and comforting. Through her magnificent singing we all felt a deep connection to one another and to our past and future.
Rabbi Wagner brought peace and love to a challenging journey and we remain forever grateful.
