One first and foremost remembers Levi’s genuineness.
As “an outsider” to Crown Heights, the one family which to me stands, or stood out, as the most decent, down to earth, mentshlich, Chassidish, i.e. all the qualities one aught to have, is the Deitcsh family.
I was a class older then Levi, so did not have much to do with him personally, but as mentioned, his genuineness, endearing smile and simple mentshlichkeit tears my heart out, that so precious a person was tragically taken far to early.
My only comfort is, that I am sure with such genuineness and goodness, he achieved miracles – of which you know far more than I – in his all to short life span by our standards.
May his wife and children be comforted amongst all mourners and may we merit Vehikitzu Vraninu Shoichnie Afar Vhu Bsoicham!
