Grandad Lipa

As you will know from the previous post, Coby's grandad Lipa passed away last Sunday evening.
We just wanted to thank you all from the bottom of our hearts for your messages and thoughts. Al spent the night with his father after his passing and told me that he was receiving texts and e-mails all through the night and they gave him great comfort. Bless you all.

Lipa was born in Dukla, Poland in 1926 and spent his entire teenage years, from the outbreak of World War 2 in 1939 to his liberation by the Russians in 1945, in concentration camps. He did not think he would survive. He did. And Coby will grow up to tell his story.
