  1. They don’t often make them like Sruly. A quiet behind the scenes guy who got things done. When he saw something that needed tikun he took care of it without fanfare. You had to dig to find out who was responsible for it but we always suspected it was him. And more often than not we were right.
    May he get the ultimate done in Shomayim in hastening the coming of Moshiach.

  2. to see sruli daven at kol shimshon on a regular ordinary day mincha/marriv was something extraordinary. His yiras shomayim was evident in the way he stood pouring out his heart to hashem you could tell his unassuming low key nature was hiding a very special lofty neshoma full of yiras shomayim
    may he be a meilitz yosher for his family ,may hakdosh bhu give the family koach to overcome this terrible loss and continue in path he forged
