This is aunt Dora Solomovici - my mother's sister - with her grandchildren, with Raluca Puscaciuc - the one on the right - and Sandel Puscaciuc - the one on the left. They are the children of Tili Puscaciuc, my cousin.
My mother had a sister, Dora Solomovici. She lived in Botosani as well. Her husband - whom I haven't met, either - died, and left her with 4 children. However, all of them graduated high school, they made a life for themselves. These were my 4 cousins: Lazar, Liza, Benu and Tili. And my aunt was left a widow to raise the children, and my uncle - Avram Klein - supported her and the children. He took care of most anything when the children were little - he supplied them with various things, gave my aunt spending money.
The youngest, Tili, was 3-4 years younger than me [was born in 1918-19]. Her name was Puscaciuc - her husband's name. She is married to a Christian and has 2 children: Sandel and Raluca - accomplished children, they both have a bachelor's degree. I'm not on such good terms with Tili - I no longer remember what it was that made us drift apart. However, I still thought about calling her on the phone to see if she was still alive, how she was doing, for it's been years since I no longer have any news of her. She is the last of my cousins that might still be alive.
