    I will always remember my Uncle Lenny as a kind, erudite man with a lovely smile. His devotion to my Aunt Ruthie (l”v) was a living example to me of how a husband should treat a wife.
    He was a lifelong friend to my father, Harold Bloom (l” v) and I loved to hear the stories about life in the shetel of Providence.
    I hope his loving children have peace, knowing he is at rest.
