I met this gentleman only once, but wow did he radiate kindness.

Anna (Tunik) Grinshpun

Abraham was a kind and gentle soul and one of the sweetest people I've ever met. I've never seen a man with so much love for his wife. Even into their eighties and nineties, the two continued to act like a teenage couple in love. It was a beautiful thing to witness.
