  1. Wow…so so sad! Rabbosai, do not take anything in life for granted. Be nice to everyone. Do chesed for others. Treat everyone with respect. Think about what you do. You never know. Bd”e.

  2. Ahron, You will be missed! You were such a caring person. Up until the last moment you were always so concerned for others. I will miss you so much. May Hashem give kochos to your wife and 3 kids, along with the rest of your family. Oy does my heart ache for your mother. BD”E.

  3. R’ Shimon ZT”L was actually named Shimon Dovid, however the Kapishnitzer Rebbe told him to change it to Dovid Shimon since Shimon Dovid is roshei teivos shin daled

  4. Aron was the sweetest most gentle person who defined what it meant to be a good person and a close freind to anyone who came in contact with him. Your gentle smile and good humor will be missed and your way of suffering without trying to impose on anyone is something we were all in awe of seeing how uncomfortable you were to see other having to help out. To the freinds that were always there may hashem give you all the brachas you need and may Aron go up to shmayim in peace and hapiness and join his father in gan eden

  5. Aron had a heart of gold with such eidelkeit. There wasn’t an arogant bone in his body. He possesed tremendous chein & neiymus just like his father zaztzal. May all the sturmans including his special special mother have a nechuma & may mashiach come soon so they can be together with R’ Shimon & Aron again.

  6. Aharon Sturman you were very specail man and yet you made a chosov thing for me to come to learn with all 4 of your brothers and we surely going to never forget you wonderful torah learning on the Parsha and yet May you have merit from all of us in Shayim..Your Torah words and learning will never be forgotten… I am going to miss you Reb Aharon Struman T”ZL … I haven’t seen you for 5 years yet I know I will never forget you at all..May Hashem give you a Merit on everything you given us… Reb Aharon.. You are so special as your father was.. He gave you a merit of Torah learning…Reb Aharon was Tzdaik to everyone in the Commuinty and we surely miss you …

  7. Aaron was the most inspiring special person I had ever come across… always welcoming me to his home… always willing to lend a helping hand… I will miss him deeply…. after all his pain and suffering in this world he is going straight up to Gan eden …. I Pray that his amazing wife and kids have strength to over come this great loss of this great Man…
