I was just in Zanesville for my 58th high school reunion and learned the sad news about Rona there. We lived at 2775 W. Ray Drive, three houses away from the Coganows. Rona and I became friends when we moved to Zanesville in 1954, and our mothers were also good friends. My father, Simon Friedeman, was the Rabbi, and Rona and I had our Bat Mitzvahs together. She was a year older than me, and her birthday was August 5th while mine was August 4th. We were close friends through high school. I slept over at their house lots of Saturday nights, and we would babysit Mark, and watch Saturday night television programs like Hit Parade.
