More on the Baby Boomer Icon Death Journal

Here are two recent deaths, both with links to my native Bronx.

Corazon Aquino

The Reverend Ike.  The Reverend was a part of the Bronx scene when I was growing up in the 60's and early 70's. 

And a third death, not related to the Bronx, but a note in passing of another Holocaust survivor:  Dina Gottliebova Babbit.  Growing up in the Bronx, several of my neighbors were Holocaust survivors.  It was never talked about, but we children knew.  As an adult, I mourn the passing of these human beings who endured so much. This particular story was never resolved in her lifetime....I hope this story eventually has a good ending.  Please take the time to read about her.
