Joshua Stein died a gentle death on Saturday evening, Sept. 8, as Shabbat was flowing into the beginning of a new week; he was 68 years old. On the following Monday morning hundreds of men and women filled the pews of Providence’s Temple Emanu-El to bid him a fond and final farewell.

The day before Mother’s Day I found a paperback copy of Raymond Carver’s “What We Talk About When We Talk About Love” (first published in 1981) standing on a bookshelf in my daughter’s condo in Cambridge, Mass. My wife and I were babysitting for two of our granddaughters so that their parents could have a well-deserved break in their routine. During a quiet moment, I began reading the first of Carver’s 17 short stories, which averaged but nine pages each; within 48 hours I had gone through the entire collection.
