All people have three things in common. We are born, we live, we die. What is most important is how we spend the time we live.
Anna Faerman indeed had a zest for life with a great emphasis on her family. Her family was always number one to her, it was the most important thing in her life.
Her life started in the Soviet Union soon before WWII and it was a constant struggle, but needless to say, she emerged victorious because she never gave up on anything. Later in life she decided to go to America with her family for one simple reason - she wanted a better life for her children. She was brave to change her life so completely and irrevocably at the time when very few people had the courage to leave the Soviet Union. Anna, and her soulmate Alex, left their worldly possessions behind to start a brand-new life in the new country where she knew no-one but yet she truly believed that it must be done because it’s for the best of the family. No matter what Anna did in life it was for the benefit of her family. The time has proved that Anna was right. Her children and grandchildren became successful and made her proud of their many accomplishments.
She was the rock that we all leaned on during difficult times and when the times were good she was always our biggest cheerleader.
Along the way Anna met many, many people, obtained new worldly possessions and always inspired everyone to be and to do the best by being the best. She was also a great friend.
She came to America with her soul-mate Alex, the love of her life for wonderful 51 years. They’ll now finally reunite.
She truly loved her family: her husband Alex, lovely daughter Lilya, son Sergey, son-in-law Jack, daughter-in-law Lana, grandsons Alec, Max, Mark, granddaughters Liana and Alyssa, great-grandchildren Maddox, Zayne, Kai and Peter.
Anna had a big heart who loved life but her one true passion was reading. She traveled extensively throughout the US and the world but her books expanded her mind and her universe. A visit to a nice restaurant and a good book afterwards made her day. That’s because simple things in life warmed her soul. Her sense of humor was second to none. Her jokes and stories brightened the lives of those who knew her.
She loved America and her adopted home in Houston. She was a true patriot of the United States of America.
Truly, Anna Faerman will never die, as she will be forever in our hearts and minds. She is our guardian angel.
Her life was a precious gift to all of us.
