A Zeynep Sky -in memory of Zeynep Bakkal

My understanding of the name Zeynep, it means jewel or fathers jewel. The Rockport community  has lost yet another jewel, Zeynep Bakkal. Many of us knew her from the jewelry shop on Bearskin Neck and many of us have children grown up with her and Ilter’s son.

She will be missed by many.

Zeynep thank you for bringing your art and your craft and making it a part of our community. You were truly a jewel.

    Thank you Eoin for this most beautiful and fitting tribute for the stunning and artistic Zeynep Bakkal. Her sudden departure from earth takes my breath away even on this uncertain planet. She will be so missed. I use to eat at Ilter’s Narural Foods Restaurant on the Neck with Zeynep’s store with lovely windows and displays next door. I enjoyed the delicious food and hospitality. And I enjoyed watching the graceful and eloquent family with the sweet little boy. My heart goes out to Zeynep’s family. I see her presence in the sky. Thinking of you and your son Ilter. So nice Eoin. Thank you. Dona

    Stunning photo and stunned to hear of this sad news. A reminder of our own mortality and that we must take more time to notice the magic happening around us. Ilther, you are in my thoughts.

    Thank you for such fitting words – Zynep was a jewel for sure. I always admired her and felt a sweet presence with her. It will be hard to pass her shop on Bear Skin Neck.
