  1. My heart goes out to R’ Yerachmiel. He is such a special individual and such an Oived H-shem. To think what he went through the last few years and now he is left without his dear wife. H-shem should give him and his wonderful family a true nechama.

  2. Yerachmiel,

    You have done everything you possibly could have done to make things as good as possible at home. You tried and tried beyond normal human expectations to help your wife have a refuah shelaima all these years.

    You have been incredibly concerned & passionate about your wife & children’s care & well being all the way up until the very last moment. Your tireless, selfless midos are a true inspiration to anyone that knows you. It’s people like you that bring Moshiach sooner than later.

    May you and your family have a nechama, a yeshua b’rachamim and have many simcha’s going forward.

  3. Oy, nebech. I was at the house of the nifteres w/ Mesameach on several occassions. She was, l”a, such a cholanis, in such pain – u can’t imagine. And this went on for a few YEARS, not months. Such a terrible story. What a special neshamah. Amazingly, her children were always in good spirits w/ full bitachon in a refuah till the end. May she be a mailitzah yesharah to her family & to all of K’lal Yisroel. Dudi B.
