Dear Rosa and family It was just yesterday that I asked Marion how Shya was doing, how shocked I was only a few hours later when she emailed me about his passing. I met Shya when I worked at CZF and he was the accountant. He always had a joke and a smile. We met many times in my car when he would come down from his office to sign cheques and so I wouldn't have to find parking and go up to his office. What a mensch. At this most difficult time, remembering all the happy times with Shya hopefully will help you and all his dear family. Baruch Dayan HaEmet. Fondly Anna Klein Lerner Jerusalem
