The attendees about 20 people mostly women, many of whom had danced with Lola, one who flew in from Chicago that said that Lola was the greatest influence in her life. She too was a well know flamenco dancer .
The site is where Lola’s parents are buried. Reuben Tashman 1886 to 1932 and Rose Tashma 1893 to 1975
Annabelle's daddy who choreographed a fantastic day, a wonderful tribute for his Aunt, something that his mother and father could only be very proud of. He brought a bus full of her friends and made it a celebration, with food, drink, music and a wonderful tribute to Lola. (Sorry I didn’t have a better picture)
A rabbi spoke eloquently about how Lola lit up everyone’s life she touched, how she was an inventor and creator her whole life, and how her 90 years on earth were a blessing to all who knew her and then Richard spoke and topped that!
Then Lola said a final farewell to those dancers, friends, and soul mates who shared her passion for dance.
And those who loved her spirit said a final prayer.
And then an earn with her ashes were sealed in a box, lowered to earth to rest near her mother and father a friends and family said good bye with beautiful roses.
Richard kisses his grandmother and grandfather.
And then, as the last dirt was placed on Lola’s ashes those women broke out in clapping, but not in applause but in perfect unison with Spanish Flamenco clapping, like castanets, and someone was singing and several were stomping and you could feel Lola, with her arched back, hands held high, castanets a blaze and stomping heels. It was stunning ! It was also a perfect farewell to a lovely lady who was so unique and who touched so many lives in such a beautiful and memorable way. I was so taken by the moment, I neglected to take a photo.
