Dear Naomi and family - I just found out last night about Mike’s tragic passing. Although our time together was short during our last year at Concordia University, we spent many intense times together as partners on various school projects. During that time, I benefitted from his academic brilliance. More importantly, I had never met a person with such a focussed vision for his life, and when we had a little free time, his main subject were all the future plans he had with the love of his life, Naomi. Our brief time together had a major impact me and how I’ve led my life, and even though we lost contact raising our respective families over the last couple of decades, he was always present in my life. I’m so deeply saddened by his passing and my heart goes out to you and your family. His light will live on.

Dear Robin and Naomi and Family, Looking at Papermans site I saw the name Michael Cohen with this likeable smile and I decided to read on. Then I saw Barbara and Avrum Cohen and said that’s Jenny and Hymie’s grandson. My grandmother was Mollie Schaefer, Jenny’s sister. Then I saw the name Robin and I knew for sure. My parents were Gita and Julius Kolomeir. I am so sorry to hear about this tragic accident. I called Philip Singer. What a devasting loss. I listened to the funeral and cried listening to the beautiful speeches. May your memories give you strength. My heartfelt sympathies. Bonnie Marcus
