Note from Julie Edelstein
He was my grandfather’s brother who lived in Mercedes.  He had a small furniture store.  I remember he had red hair and would pop in from time to time to visit us in Brownsville.   One such time was at Passover when we were opening the door for Elijah and there he stood!  There on out, every Passover we remembered him!
