Default My friend Ira died this morning

Ira was diagnosed in September 2016 with Stage IV Pancreatic Cancer .

He and I had been friends since 1948.He and his wife loved to cruise,primarily river but ocean as well.
I wish he was into posting on line because everyone would have loved him on CM .Unlike me he never would have argued with anyone .

In life he was a school teacher as well as a Synagogue Cantor(the person who sings at religious services).He would drive 100 miles every weekend to go to the synagogue-100 miles each way.

He was a wonderful friend to me .Again I thank those who prayed for him.

Thanks to all who posted today .Ira as I indicated yesterday was a Cantor with a truly wonderful voice . He is on You Tube .i doubt that his family will remove it . In addition ,last December he was interviewed by a journalist and this too is online.If anyone is interested in viewing the you tube or reading about him please e-mail or PM me and I will give you the links .
