    I was told this Partially isn’t true.
    Family hasn’t made a decision yet

  • So sad says:

    Headline should be changed to:
    Tragic- Heart Breaking. This is so, SO sad on so many fronts. Even the Coast Guard chief says its heartbreaking, when a man gives his life to save another.
    There are no words.
    May HKBH give strength to the family during this incredibly difficult time.

  • chaya says:

    I know this family personally and they are the best of עם ישראל. Reb Reuvain’s father is also himself a Rebbi for many years. May the רבש”ע grant them a נחמה.
