Morris Cohn, z”l

It is with great sadness that I share the news with you that Morris Cohn passed away at 11:00 am today, August 31, 2010.  It had been a rapid decline in recent weeks after years of struggling with Altzheimer’s.  The end was very peaceful surrounded by loving family, prayers and angels.

The funeral service will be on Thursday morning at 10:00 am at the Crist Mortuary Chapel, 3395 Penrose Place, Boulder, CO 80301, followed by a graveside service.  There will be two nights of shiva, with minyanim at 7pm on Thursday evening and next Tuesday evening (September 7th)at the Cohn’s home.

We will definitely be asking for help with meals (vegetarian and fish) for the family and for shiva.

Hamakom y’nachem – we wish strength and comfort to Barbara, Hilary and Daniel, Ari and Ronit, Bobette and all the other mourners and alav
hashalom, peace on Morris’ gentle soul – Moshe ben Noam HaCohen u’Devorah.
