Rav Yaakov Moshe Charlap was not just any tzadik or talmid chochom for whom we must have the most respect. He was a person who [by his own admission] neshamos would approach for their tikkun - and he would do the tikkun [I don't know what exactly that means but it is clear that he was not only in this physical world].
Here is a letter to his grandson - the great, beloved Rav Zevulun Charlap Shlita. There is SOOOO much to learn and gain from this letter. Be madayeik in every word. My favorite is the conclusion "your grandfather who yearns to kiss and hug you with love and holy affinity [based on the talmudic concept of "חיבת הקודש"]
