    A good and streight person. Got up early to learn and Daven. Worked hard. Did good things in his own quiet way. Wonderful huaband and father. May he be a “gutter better” for his wife and his children to be blessed with sinchos and may Tov and Chessed persue them Tomid Kol Hayomim — all the time for ever and ever.

    This is terrible, I met him 3 weeks ago...

    This man helped me move 3 of his bookshelves that he was giving for free to a newly wed couple — down a long narrow staircase. What a tzaddik to do a favor to a yid he never even met before!! May the entire family be comforted.

    We know that very soon moshiach will come, and we will all go to Eretz Yisroel, a dream so long waited for.

    Avrohom and I have been life long chaverim, actually more than chaverim, more like brothers. Our relationship goes back almost 35 years, we spoke to each other constantly and always consulted each other regarding all life issues. I personally know how excited he was to be making Aliyah. I was with him in Yerushalyim a litte over a year ago when he and Leah decided to make the move. I will miss him very much.
