    Moishe was my great uncle. He was loved by all of my siblings. We felt tremendous affection for him as he was always kind and loving. In many ways, he reminded us of our grandfather, his brother Henry. May he rest in peace. His memory shall be a blessing. Our warmest condolences to his daughters, Gigi and Frances.
