Uncle is looking up the word Mench in his Yiddish-English dictionary. We discover there is no female form to this word, which means 'human being' and 'decent person'. So it can be used for both males and females! It is used when you have very very high regard for the person! As I do for my Uncle Harry!
My aunt is my mother's youngest sister, the last of the three sisters still living. It was so much fun being with them both. They have wonderful senses of humor and we reminisced about family, told jokes, talked about our lives...it was very rich...and as my aunt said: "Each day is a gift." We truly enjoyed this gift today!
Full of LOVE!!!!
