The photo shows our two grandchildren - Lyubomir (1970) and Yanita (1973) Punchevi, who are siblings The photo was taken in 1990 in Yanita's home in Vidin, hours before her graduation ball, to which she was accompanied by her brother. They are children of my older daughter Streya Puncheva (nee Alhalel). The sad thing is that two days after that graduation ball their father Ignat Punchev died suddenly.
I have two children, whom I love very much. The elder one, Streya, was born in 1949 in Vidin [port city on the right bank of the Danube in Bulgaria, 220 km. away from Sofia]. She graduated the chemical technical school in Vidin. She has been working as a chemist in the local meat processing plant for a number of years. My younger daughter Sheli was born in 1954 and is a construction engineer. Unfortunately, she does not have children.
My grandson Lyubomir, who is director of Bulbank in Sofia, also has children. They are Konstantin Punchev and Mihaela Puncheva. Yanita now lives in a kibbutz. She has a daughter Viara (nee Slavcheva, but I cannot remember her new family name). She has a family in northern Israel (I do not remember the name of their kibbutz).
