    sorry to know of your loss, Deveera.

    I am a cousin, through Nathan’s father, Aron the Cohen (Lisse from Russia and Philadelphia).
    When and if you are able, I would like to communicate with you about your family roots. I am a retired MD, just doing a family history for the grandchildren. I would like your input. I contacted Owen and have spoken to him recently, but I would like to know you better too.
    Be well,
    Deborah Ruth Liss from Philadelphia.
