Boruch Dayan Emes - Naroler Rebbe ZY"A

Yeshiva World News reported the following:
Yeshivaworld regrets to inform you of the Petirah of the Naroler Rebbe ZATZAL a short while ago in Bnei Brak. The Levaya will be leaving from his Bais Medrash on Rechov Rashi in Bnei Brak, then to Belz in Yerushalayim and finally to Har Hamenuchos. He was one of the last links to pre-war Europe and was 99 years-old (would have turned 100 in Elul) by his Petirah. He lived in New York after the war before moving to Eretz Yisroel. His son is a Rov in Flatbush. May he be a Maylitz Yosher for Gantz Klal Yisroel.
His name was R' Chaim Meir Yechiel ben R' Dov Beirish Shapiro - Zchuso Yogen Aleinu
