  1. Also, please use caution when using the term “Lakewood” as an adjective. It means different things to different people. to us, its unzere. If the guy is unfortunately dead, it really is not important to emphasize where his utility bills etc were mailed to.

  2. Always sad to drugs destroy someone.

    Hunch- out of respect to the family, they might not share the name.

    Zumy- I understand what you mean, but Lakewood belongs to frum and goyim alike, and every family feels Lakewood is theirs. The drugs are yenem but the family of the man is still part of the community.
