    I feel your pain from losing your very special brother. I regret I never got to know him. I would love to hear more of his insights. Your sharing has inspired me.

    As one who never knew your brother or your family; it is a phrase I will really remember and is so special.

    Please Hashem should comfort you.
    I recently lost my two parents close together and have also experienced the “roller-coaster.”
    He was so young- and one could imagine, very sweet.
    I am truly sorry.
    B”H we really need Mossiach, like right away.
    If my husband BJ and I can help in any way, yourself or your sister-in-law, we would be happy to.
    May we hear only Good.
    Bracha and BJ

    So touching wow.

    I met him a week or 2 before he passed away in a resort in palm springs, he asked me: are you so and so’s brother?” I said yes! He then went on to tell me about how he was a shliach of his in wilkes barre and asked how he was doing.. such a nice person. My only regret was not speaking to him longer as i was in a rush.

    Moshiach now!!!

    WOW!!!!!

    Important lesson

    The lesson I take away from this beautiful story is that we should always show and express our appreciation and love to our family and friends in the here and now, and not wait until 120 to talk about how much we “loved” them.

    words full of exquisite expression, thank you!

    What a gift of writing, baruch Hashem, you can use it on your journey to healing. And how beautiful it was in expression for me to see those words written, for my own personal losses, so may we all be comforted along with the rest of the mourners of tzion V’rushalayim.

    Ariel was my Google before Google (and after)!

    I can attest that you’re not exaggerating about Ariel’s Z.L. vast knowledge.
    I had the privilege to spend many summers and Yeshivah years with Ariel and had many conversations with him, I remember I bought a Sefer called Lama uMadua Heichon Vikama (Questions and answers in Tanach etc. kehos 1996) (I believe it was 1997 in Yeshivah Kfar Chabad) I opened the book and began reading the questions (most I had no clue about) he answered everything perfectly on the spot….
    May his neshomo have an Aliya.
    Moshiach Now!

    Hashem is picking roses for His garden above???Gan Eden is merely a “holding block” for souls until the ultimate reward – the Messianic Era – At that time the souls will be reunited with their bodies – At that time the ESSENCE of Hashem will be revealed in the physical world…In the REALM wherein His nation lovingly TOILED & SACRIFICED for 1,000’s of yrs.to create a DWELLING PLACE for the CREATOR!
