He is my model of how a Jew can be… a heros how he took care of my need and also the need of every one that came to him. So talented, so much wisdom, softness, intellect above many, in medicine he knew more than many specialist in other field! A friend, a very dear one. May Hachem send Mochiah there are less and less Dr like him. He is surely direct to Gan Eden !
My deepest sympathy to his family. The world lost a big neshama.
