Yehudi Menuhin wrote this about him:
“I loved him from the very moment we met. Not only was he the friendliest, most warm-hearted and most dependable of them all, but he was also the most humble and wise. He never wanted to be more than himself or different from what he was, never wanted to seem smarter than others; he always approached others openly, without concealed motives, natural and with no flourishes—a genuine person.”
