No words to describe my sadness. Since meeting him at hebrew school at age 12 he was always one of my favorite people! He use to come over my house on the weekends during BBYO with Scott F and hang out- asking my mom about being a doctor and how he wanted to go to medical school. I am praying for everyone who was touched by his life.
