So emestik, so kind, so fine.
He was a example of what a Lubavitcher Chosid should be like.
He together with his wife were special people and raised a wonderful fine family of children.

According to what he told me he was born in S Johns, Newfoundland and brought to NY by his mother at age 10 when a German submarine was seen off the coast of Newfoundland. Of all the yeshivas in NY only.Lubavitch agreed to take him in.

Nobody like TOBY – we can all learn a lesson from her (and her husband and children) in how to care for our elder parents.
