And regarding the YWN drivel, what's the point of the below paragraph? (And why not include something about his gadlus btorah and as a manhig Yisroel instead of the implication of some voodoo style sickness)

In a shocking twist of events in the past three weeks, his oldest daughter suffered a fatal heart attack two weeks ago, and was suddenly Niftar. Rav Shteinman had never been informed of the bad news but literally moments after her petira his conditioned worsened and rapidly turned critical. His condition continued to deteriorate for 12 hours, but miraculously stabilized.

Keeping to his wishes expressed in his will might be very difficult for many. I wonder if people will indeed follow his requests.
I've been waiting over 5 years with bated breath for someone to say that!

I know some גדולים explicitly instructed that some be ignored due to כבוד התורה

Hmm. How is that not contradictory?

Fascinating that they completely honored his requests. There were actually no hespedim and he was buried within 6 (or 7) hours.
Amazing to see the amounts of people who came out to the levaya. Kavod asu lo bmoso

Hmm. How is that not contradictory?
My understanding is one is כבוד התורה and the other is כבוד המת. If a river tells people not to stand for him, I think many wouldn't listen.

Unconfirmed source

"Despite Rav Shteinman's will. For the sake of Kavod Hatorah, Rav Gershon Edelstein ruled that all high school students & above from the whole country should participate in the Levaya."
What does it say?
See picture.

Who do you think you are fooling? You think you are going to pull a quick one on your Creator? Good luck with that.
