When we were in Oholie Torah Zal ,Mottle a”h made a shturem how can it be that the coffee cups had images of playing cards on it like. “Cards are from shalosh klipos hatimeios” (see sefer of rly bardichev on channuka)
He was poel by the one who got to make sure not to accept these from the supplier. He was also makpid to get to sleep on time to have a good head for learning the next day. He was also mekabel kol adom bsever ponim yofos and a good word.
I had my mother’s levaya about 11 or 12 years ago 2 or 3 days before yom kippur. we had to make it by 3PM in Perpignan. Rav Pevzner of blessed memory picked us up and we went to their home. His wife had a 5 week baby. We stayed overnight and had to go back to London and then New York. The travel agent had made a mistake on the ticket and I was missing a part of the trip ( Perpignan- Paris). Rav Motul borrowed us his credit card ( about $300 ). as my husband did not have one on him. He was very nice. He should be an advocate high up for his family . WITH MUCH SORROWS
