Just saw this...made my heart sad. What a lovely gentleman that had lived through so much.

 

He left the earth a better place for his kindness and generosity.

I just saw his obituary in The Washington Post.

 

Grateful to him and may he rest in peace.

It's a real tragedy that this virus is taking people who survived wars, including  some holocaust victims. Of course those who were in  WWII and even Vietnam Nam are elderly now, but there is something especially tragic about such people now dying of COVID.
