1 Menachem Av, 5711,

Greetings and blessings,

I duly received your letter of Lag BaOmer and also your letters of 5 and 8 Tammuz. I read the pan1 at the gravesite of my revered father-in-law, the Rebbe זצוקללה"ה, נבג"ם, זי"ע, to arouse abundant mercies for every one of those mentioned in the pan for their needs. “The tzaddik who has departed and who is to be found in all the worlds more than during his lifetime”2 will certainly draw down blessing and success for you and your entire household in material and spiritual matters.

…b) In reply to your question as to whether to tell your children about the death of their mother: In my opinion, you should gradually explain to them that G‑d has now brought her to a place where she does not suffer any illness or infirmity, that this place is in heaven, and that from there, she can also have an influence on all of her children and request from G‑d that they are successful in their studies and conduct. Now, as well, a mother’s mercies are directed to her sons and daughters, and she yearns that they conduct themselves in a manner appropriate to Jewish boys and girls, and through this, they will bring her great satisfaction. Then it is within her potential to cause their affairs to be successful. The only difference is that this cannot be seen with eyes of flesh. It is self-understood that the wording you will use when communicating with your older [children] will not be appropriate to use for the younger ones. Nevertheless, the inner message can be more or less the same for all of them based on the above concepts….

With blessings for establishing yourself appropriately, ma­terially and spiritually, in the near future,
