has passed away.
On Sunday, as soon as I heard the sad news of Alex's passing, I spoke by phone to his son Amnon. Of course, I offered my condolences.
Alex was a good friend to Mr. AOW and me. When Mr. AOW was in the nursing home, nobody called him there - except for Alex, who phoned all the way from Israel to speak to my husband.
"Courage from Israel!" Alex stated emphatically.
Alex also phoned our home several times after Mr. AOW came home. Mr. AOW loved those calls. They meant a lot to him and to me as well.
Amnon asked me to post an announcement here on the web as Alex's family didn't know all the Internet acquaintances and friends that Alex had made.
Tough as I am, I am typing this post through tears.
I will miss Alex. He was a rock - and lots of fun too.
