  1. A special person, who nurtured hospital patients, despite the fact that (to my knowledge) he was not blessed with children. May all his good deeds serve as his continuity.
    To his immediate relatives: Hamokom Yenachem Oschem b’soch sh’ar aveilei tzion v’yrushalayim

  3. Baruch Dayan Emes . My heart aches for all of us relatives and people who were so blessed to of known such a genuine special person . Cousin Kenny.

  4. I was twice a patient in his hospital. It was a privilege to know him. His desire to take away a patient’s pain was as strong as if it was his own pain. Since he was a cohen he blessed me every single day I was there. He never had his own children, but with his wife they run girls’ dormitory where no doubt their chased was without limits. He will be sorely missed.
