    Youngest daughter’s name is PESSA Leah, not Ester Leah– obviously couldn’t have a Malka Ester and an Ester Leah– named after Pessa Leah LaPine HY”D.

    To pessy’s friend,
    you wrote “whatever hashem does is for the better, sometimes we just dont see it.” I just want to point out, that although what you said is true and you only meant well, please understand that it is the wrong time and place to express this. One can feel that way in his heart, but DO NOT tell it to a mourner. I speak from experience, unfortunately. May you continue to be a great friend and support for Pessy during this VERY hard time. Hashem should comfort the entire family and we should merit the coming of Moshiach right away!! Enough Tzoros..
