  • Misameach Rules says:

    I used to see Mr Lipp v/ often @ Kol Shimshon. I chatted w/ him on numerous occassions. The fact that he had obvious medical conditions, among other tzaros, he ALWAYS greeted everyone w/ a big cheerful smile & a nice word. He also never EVER complained, even when I gave him rides to his Doctor, from time to time. He was an exceptional neshama & may he be a Mailitz Yosher for the Kol Shimshon neighborhood bifrat & all of klal yisroe Bichlal. Dudi B
