Morris Cohen, 83
I looked forward to seeing Morris each week and the vigorous conversations we had. When Morris first told me he had cancer he said, “I’m not afraid to die. I’m just not.” He said something about dreamless sleep. I told him that I was afraid that he would die. Morris gave my family three books from his library, including an 1832 elementary school primer about farming that draws a parallel between the comportment of a farm and a good life. From now on, when I think of a good life I will not think about a neat and prosperous farm. I will think of Morris.
May he rest in peace under the protective wings of the Almighty. Remembering, from us in Minnesota.
Morris Cohen was a gentleman, a scholar, and many things besides. I was a foolish student employee of his many summers ago, and I’ll never forget his patience, grace, humor and work ethic.
Professor Cohen has been an inspiration and an example to me for many years. May he rest in peace, and my condolences to his wonderful wife Gloria and the rest of his family.
