Today my beloved father-in-law Eugene Cohen passed away after a truly brave battle with pancreatic cancer. He was 85 years old and fully engaged in life. Two weeks ago he was working full time; ten weeks ago he was playing tennis. He faced this horrible disease with the same courage and grace that he faced all the challenges of his life. As we stood around his bed trying to help him, we realized, that he was the one who was still helping us. He showed us how to live, and after all, how to die.
Good night, dear Gene. You are forever beloved.
