I wonder what people who type "u" instead of "you" do with all their free time.

I am sure I know who he is but can't place a face to the name.

I saw reports that this was COVID-19 related. Son-in-law says it was not.
BTW the R' Don Segal line is a mistake, and Donn later corrected it.

Unless someone with corona dies from something like a car accident, I think it should be counted as a corona death. Thatís the way it works. Many people with a pre-existing or underlying illness die after they get corona virus, when they would have lived longer without it. Thatís the way we've been counting flu deaths. 1/1000 is basically the 90 year old man with cancer that died when they got the flu. If it puts them over the top, it counts.

BDE. Such terrible news. He was perfectly healthy, I would shmooze with him all the time. Special person.

His son is the Rebbe in Eretz Yisroel who has bachurim over each week.
