I worked with your dad at QC in 1967. He was a very nice man and inspiring researcher and helped me decide I wanted to be a physician rather than a basic science researcher. I have thought of him often over the years and glad to see he lived to see his kids grow up as well as they have.

Dear Naomi,Susan,Josh,and Beth - I hope that you receive this message. I heard of your dad's passing long after the service. I will always have fond memories of your dad as well as your mom and the entire family. My parents adored your parents and i will always remember how your mom in particular had a true interest in hearing what i had to say about various topics. You should know that as a dental resident many years ago at the university of connecticut, your dad's name came up in conversation with a professor of microbilogy. His work was highly respected! Hoping all is well with all of you - Zach Orden

I miss talking to my father. He always had such a kind and joyful spirit even when he was weak and in pain. It hurts so much.

I'm sadden to learn of Corky's passing,today. Corky was my adviser for my graduate study at Queens College. He introduced me to the Rockefeller University for my thesis research. I subsequently worked as an electron microscopist at RU for 36 years. I will miss our yearly exchange of holiday greeting cards to stay in touch. I will miss you very much Dr. Aaronson, my professor.
