A true Tzaddik
For those of us lucky to know him we were blessed. Humble and loving, sensitive and kind. Aleksander was completely selfless until the last minute. His needs were never heard and everyone else's were top priority to him.

Sanya, give Malka a big hug from us down here, we miss you both greatly.
