    In the sefer מטעי משה the brother’s write on him
    הת’ המופלג ומפורסם השנון המושלם חו”נ י”א כמ’ ר’ אהרן בן בציון
    and then they write about his untimely passing
    בעוד האיש היקר הלזה כלו עיניו מיחל לראות את הספר היקר הזה יוצא לאור מבית הדפוס נלב”ע גם הוא ונכנס הבן אצל האב ביום כ”ד אייר דנא (תרל”ח) תנצב”ה
