Barbara Cohen was our closest friend and, along with her family, we grieve her loss. In many ways, along the many years, Barbara and Avrum and their children were intertwined with our family. Our life styles were amazingly compatible and we all benefited so much from her caring, spirit and intelligence in good times and in bad. She was a great part of our lives and we will miss her very much, but we will always enjoy the memories of our lives together.
