Blog: Hy Levy is in the Hereafter - 2012-05-21
Hy Levy passed away in his sleep last night. A couple weeks earlier he told Mosey and me that this was just the manner in which he wished to pass. He died of complications caused by cancer. Hy was diagnosed late last year. He chose not to fight it.
Hy felt blessed to have friends like Pat Shannon, Carol Kramer, Laura and Mike Wilson and his brothers and sister-in-law. They went out of their way to try to convince and facilitate Hy to fight the cancer. When Hy made it clear that that did not align with his intentions, those friends did everything they could to support him, comfort him and buoy Hy's spirits.
Hy particularly loved being Jewish-mothered (his words) by Pat, Carol, and Mosey. He even took to calling Mosey "Sophie" when he wanted to let her know he noticed the extra care.
