Baruch Dayan Ha’emet: Alan Soloway z”l

star-of-davidIt is with such a heavy heart that I have to inform you all that my beloved father Alan Soloway breathed his last breath on July 1st in London.  I was holding his hand and my mother sister, my father’s sister and a favorite niece were all there and the end was peaceful.  I am so eternally grateful that I have been here for this whole journey, spending every day with him and I slept at his side in the hospital room last night.
My father lived a full and wonderful life, married to my mother for 55 years and having many adventures together.  He has always been funny and charming and adored by so many people.
Light on his soul.
I will sit the full shiva here with my family.
Thanks so very much for all the tremendous love and support.
