Back to blogging after much sadness

My dad, Elliot “Sonny” Landau

Thank you all for your patience these last few weeks as I have not been able to work on my blog. The last time I posted, my dad was in the hospital after a massive heart attack. Unfortunately, there was too much damage to the rest of his body even after open-heart surgery fixed his heart. He ultimately had too many days on the respirator, kidney failure, possible pneumonia, and liver failure. He passed away on Tuesday, July 3, 2012. I just got up from shiva yesterday morning and am trying to get back to my normal routines as best I can. And of course, that includes blogging, which I have really missed! Thank you to all of you who sent words of kindness and concern! May my future mitzvot and acts of kindness be in his merit.

Stay tuned for topics in the works:

  • July shopping tips
  • Preparing for death
  • School supply shopping
  • and more!

  1. I am very sorry to hear of this. My wife and I had hired him on 2 different occasions to paint our interior. We are moving and were looking for his contact info when we discovered this terrible news. He was fun to be around and we were looking forward to reconnecting with him. We are extremely saddened.

    He was much much more than a painter/designer. He was a great guy with an infectious personality and an artist with incredible vision. We were looking forward to reconnecting with him.

    He made our home beautiful. He took liberties and told us if we didn’t like them, he would not charge us. Needless to say we loved every thing he did.

    Our condolences to you and the rest of his loved ones.
