From the Writings of Martha Hadassah Ribalow Nadich: My Brother, Harold U. Ribalow

My Brother, Harold U. Ribalow (from the Jewish Spectator, 1983)
“My brother Uri died twice.  The first time on the night of May 9, 1977, in the operating room at New York University hospital.  After many hours of open heart surgery, his heart failed.  It was only after two more operations and the desperate efforts of an unusual medical team that he survived.  Everybody who was at all involved said it was a miracle that he did.  From that day til the day he closed his eyes forever, on October 22nd, 1982, I always felt that his life was a gift, and each time I heard his voice over the phone, it seemed to me it came from another world, a world he had already partially entered.”
