      "All his life, the music was his hobby, his passion," Serafima wrote Isaac in 1979. "He had not got musical education, but he can play the many musical instruments."

      "He was very kind, clever and talented man, and I'm glad my son looks like him," Serafima wrote.

      From Serafima by email in 2006:
      "My father Samuel Asimov was born 7.11.1909. He has ended Petrovitch school, and then went for 6-7 km to school 9-?? which has stopped with distinction and recommendation to be engaged in mathematics."

      "The daddy was the officer during the Finnish war, and has then left the volunteer when Great Domestic war began. He was on the Leningrad front, was responsible for protection of bridges of Leningrad."

      From Serafima by email:
      "In city there was Isaac Leikin, daddy (of) Ilya and Solomon, grandfather (of) Ira [Irina] Leikin. He [Samuel] brought the of soldering Isaac, and once has simply rescued him from destruction, has had time in time because Isaac was at edge of destruction. Isaac Leikin was the large engineer, and then was lost in railway accident, in 1944 with which to him have arranged. So father told to me."

      Serafima adds that Samuel helped Isaac Leikin's wife, Anna, raise her two sons [twins Ilya and Solomon] after Isaac was killed in a railway accident in 1944. [The twins both died in St. Petersburg in 2005]

      From Serafima's email: "I the (my) daddy has died in 1963 after 3 heart attacks. Years of war, blockade, a difficult post-war life have affected. We have remained one with mum but when I have grown, I have tried to find all relatives of the father which very much I love."

      Serafima writes that Samuel was "very cheerful, sociable, sports fast, but very obligatory."

      Serafima continues: "Samuel has gone on the Leningrad front, has gone through the Leningrad blockade, protected bridges of Leningrad. ...After war Samuel has arrived to Leningrad, his apartment has burned down, to him gave a small room. He worked, as the engineer - the metallurgist at university. Samuel has decided - it is necessary, that [his older brother] Boris Asimov has arrived to Leningrad, here to Life him it will be easier. ...

      "Samuel has solved - I more sociable, I shall leave, and the room let remain to Boris. Then Samuel married my mum - Dora Shmulewitch. I was born on March, 22, 1949. We lived in a mother's room - the daddy, mum, grandfather - Samson - Shmulewitch and I. But my mum was the doctor. In Leningrad began ´ Crime of doctors ª. Doctors - Jews ñ Poisoners.
      My mum should abandon her room and should move from Leningrad. Samuel has taken all and has returned to a room to Boris. We lived all together in a small room - Uncle Boris, the daddy, mum, grandfather Samson, I. It is 1953.
