Brother Yusuf Salim loved hugs. He especially loved to hug strangers. He would spread his arms wide and, with a smile, say, "Come on in here!" He told people to call him "Brother Yusuf." He would say "I'm just your humble brother," and he really meant it. He loved people, and they loved him back. Read the full appreciation by Larry Reni Thomas...
