“On behalf of myself and the entire synagogue family, we are grateful, (and) thankful for your presence here today (Wednesday).
“What happened is an act of God. There is time for everything. Like my husband do say. That is the word I knew from him very well. This is the job he was known for.
“This is what he was living for. That is what he was going to die for. So, it didn’t come to me as a surprise. I wasn’t surprise when it happened. As we all know, he was in service that day. So, that’s it,” she stated.
