Batya, you beautiful article portrayed a glimmering glimpse to us whom never had the privilege to meet ur beloved and saintly father.
His sterling character, even in a hospital bed shone brightly with how he cutely answered his learned son-in-law and how he
planted Jewish pride in his nurse.
All this when he wasn’t even feeling well. I can only imagine what he was like when he was feeling totally healthy
