WE REMEMBER HIM
At the rising of the sun and at its going down, we remember him. At the blowing of the wind and the chill of winter, we remember him. At the opening of the buds and in the rebirth of spring, we remember him. At the blueness of the skies and in the warmth of summer, we remember him. At the rustling of the leaves and in the beauty of autumn, we remember him. At the beginning of the year and when it ends, we remember him. As long as we live, he too will live; for he is now a part of us, as we remember him. When we are weary and in need of strength, we remember him. When we are lost and sick at heart, we remember him. When we have joy we crave to share, we remember him. When we have decisions that are difficult to make, we remember him. When we have achievements that are based on his, we remember him. As long as we live, he too will live; for he is now a part of us.

I mourn the loss of my dear friend, Dr. Alexander Rosin, z''l, along with my extended family. I have known him, his parents, Dr. David Rosin, z''l, and Dr. Veda Galpern, z''l, and his brother, Dr. Leonid Rosin, my whole life. My best and my earliest memories of us go back to the early 1950s in our hometown of Baku, and then they continue to our endless kitchen conversations in his Moscow apartment in the late 1980s, and then they reappear during our late night political discussions in my Philadelphia apartment in the middle of 1990s. And now he is gone and it feels like he is still here. I mourn this loss and I offer my sincere condolences to his entire extended family. I know that even though I cannot be there physically to pay my last respects, I will be there in spirit. May his memory be for a blessing and may he stay in our hearts forever. My son joins me in these condolences.
Dr. Pyotr Pinkusov,
The PINKUSOV family.

I have many fond memories of Alex. He was an incredible, inspiring and resilient man who I deeply loved and respected. I was always impressed by his immense energy and spirit. I remember one particular occasion, many years ago, when we were in Bratislava. Several of the family were having a friendly ping pong competition. Alex had been laughing and watching us and said "Anton - it's time for my turn." At first, I was perplexed that he was even having a go. I wondered, "how could this man in a wheel chair and missing part of his hand going to play?" I remember bouncing the ball in his direction and being shocked by the accuracy and speed with which it returned. We had ourselves a game! I can't remember who won and it doesn't particularly matter. What I do remember, and what really stuck with me, was his energy and his passion. He brought it to everything he did, whether it something trivial like ping pong or serious like being father. I will always miss him...

Sasha, you have been one of a kind! According to you, I could do no wrong. As a wonderful and gracious cousin, you generously showered me with unconditional love, compliments, advice. You were rooting for me no matter what. I took for granted your presence in my life which I know now was a blessing. You are my hero and I will always love and admire you for the courage, resilience and the unparalleled kindness that helped you survive “the worst of fortune’s might”. Rest In Peace!
