"My uncle, Whom I loved very much. It\'s sad to see the family you grew up with all pass away, but the bright side of this story is we\'ll be together in Heaven one day. It was fun having you as my uncle when I was a boy, but meant even more to me as we grew to be friends. Tell the family \"hi\" for me and enjoy The Reunion!"

"?Uncle? J.B. has been a part of my life since I was around 4 or 5 years old. He was a true mensch: Yiddish for an upright, honorable man who is someone to admire and emulate. He will always live on in my heart."
