This hurts. I met Ira in about 1986, he was working at Warren Henry Volvo and I was at The Collection. We remained friends since then. In fact, when he and I each ended up single again, he insisted I move in his big empty house, it was like a frat home. Told him when he met Jodi she was a keeper, he made me part of the wedding party. I later got him a job at Mercedes-Benz with me, and we had countless memories.

So sorry that your last years were so difficult. Kid Kogan, Yitz, Topper, whichever I called you at the time, you are missed.

I'm so sorry to have read about the death of your brother. I was just thinking about him recently. My fondest memory of him is sitting out on the Seawall back behind Ocean Plaza and just talking. He was a good man. I wish I had known him when he was younger. May peace be on your house.
