 Thanks, Ann.I didn't realize I posted this. I thought I'd sent it directly to 
Bob Tweedy. Sorry, folks, but thanks to Ann for looking it up. 

Ann inspired me to look it up, too. I found more than enough information about 
kaddishes,  the complete one, a mourner's kaddish, a rabbi's kaddish, but not 
the phrase I remember, even when I put it in google in quotation marks. Maybe 
it's just something our rabbi added. However, it's become a very popular 
phrase, whatever its origin; when I googled the phrase I found it in 
obituaries, books people sign at funerals, and many other places.
I'm not very religious and haven't been to services in many years but that 
phrase I do remember as ending a prayer said at the end of a service on the 
high holidays remembering those who have passed. Ann, if your friend Else gives 
you more information, please send it to me off-list. Thanks.
Join us in celebrating our 10th Anniversary!
