Ira Salman - 17 days ago

Dear Zeldie and family, I have many fond memories of Joe, who I knew and identified as Yossi, from when I was a young boy and into my teen years. What particularly stands out is the many occasions when I would observe Yossi and my late father, Avi, kibbitzing and carrying on in such a joyful and full hearted fashion. Yossi was always friendly and quick with a joke and a warm smile. Though I haven’t seen much of Joe and the rest of you over the last many years, especially since my father’s death nineteen years ago, I am still saddened to read of Yossi’s death/passing. May you all be comforted during this time of sorrow, and may Yossi’s humour and goodness continue to be a treasure for all of the immediate family, as well as all who knew and loved him. Sincerely, Ira Salman, son of the late Avi Salman.
