    We were close friends and this description of Reb Aron Leizer OB”M is precise.
    May he be a meilitz yoisher for his family, friends and supporters!! He will no doubt be just that.

    He was a very inspiring person. I remember he once came to lubavich house in london and farbrengened in the sukkah on chol hamoed. He was explaining about all the pleasures on this world. He started off with the smaller ones and then went on to the greater ones. He then explained how this is insignificant to the smallest pleasures in olom haboh.

    he always came over to me, shocked at how much i grew from the last time i saw him…he made me feel like i was part of the adult crew although i was just a child. there was something to his personality that made me feel happy and at peace. he was a man that really lived every moment of his life!! baruch dayan haemet, what a tragedy!!
    may mashiach come already!!!

    I remmeber a farbrengen from 15 years ago in which Rabbi Caitlin asked us to hold back from one food that we enjoyed eating. And till this day I hardly eat that food. My point is:he got through people. A true mashpia.

    I was only once privileged to be at Rabbi Ceitlin’s frabrengen- 10 years ago! But it is a frabrengen I will never forget, he left such an impression of what is a chossid- ‘the hour is late and we can not wait for our minds and heart to elevate’

    I was privileged to meet Rabbi Ceitlin on gimel tamuz farbrengen on 17th floor in Memorial hospital. My husband just had a surgery and we stayed on 18th floor. Rabbis wife came into our room and invited me on farbrengen. I went downstairs and find his room filled with different chassidim singing niguns. I was overjoyed to see it. He asked my last name and gave me a lots of brochos for my husbands refua. His last words.to me were : think good and will be good.
    It is a very painful loss. Ad.Mosai!
