Standing in line to wash my hands after the Kevurah I picked up my head (probably for the first time) to look at some of the other people... Bochurim who came from far and near... Bochurim who spent a lot of money to come in for Nosson...
Looking over my shoulder my eyes hit a guy and I wondered "How did he know Nosson?"... The question stuck in my head. After a couple of minutes the question changed "How did I know Nosson?". Memories of living in CH from the age 11 starting racing thruogh my mind. Its true I knew him from around the neighborhood, it is also true that I knew him from CGI Montreal and YSP, yes we were Lt Generals together in color war, we spent a year in OT together and I had the Zchus of being on Yeshivah shlichus with him for what felt like a life time - but that didn't properly answer the question "How did I know Nosson?".
Then it hit me I knew Nosson because Nosson was that type of guy who had the ability to know and truthfully care about everyone... Nossons ability to be friends with everyone went against the famous saying "a jack of all trades is a master of none"... He truthfully loved everyone and that's why everyone knew/loved Nosson.
No words would be a good enough sign off. Moshiach NOW
