  1. I remember him well from R Tzvi Kushelefsky’s yeshivah. Always a smile, always positive, always upbeat, always full of energy, always ready to JUMP to help anyone; never complained, never got angry, never said a bad or unkind word. A gentle giant (he was a strong broad tall built fellow) with the softest of demeanors and purest of hearts.
