Evan Dahms, who runs the Sherwood Park Sandridge Stables where Morel trained out of under his wife and stable co-owner Tricia — who was in Florida to coach Morel and others from Sandridge — said it was simply devastating news.“You heard the news and you just don’t want to believe it,” he said of Morel, who worked as a bartender at the Sherwood Park Keg. “Kat was such an outgoing, friendly, charismatic person. Everybody liked her. She was the life of the party and was always helping people. She was goal-driven and was out almost every day looking after her horse. She had been with our stables for about eight years. When I talked to Tricia she was still in shock and couldn’t quite believe it either. Everybody is upset and saddened by it.

Deaths for the week of Jan. 10, 2020 - The Jewish News of Northern California
Cantor. Five years later, after graduation, he spent two years as Cantor in South Bend, Indiana. Then the family moved to Palo Alto, California, where he served as Cantor at Congregation Beth Jacob in Redwood City with Rabbi Teitelbaum for over three decades. He earned a master’s degree from Stanford and an honorary doctorate from Hebrew Union College.
In the ’90s, he was diagnosed with throat cancer, but after two successful surgeries, he was able to live cancer-free for many years. Sadly, his voice was greatly impacted, and he was no longer able to eat normally. Yet, in retirement, he led services for Jewish holidays on cruises. He lost Eva to lung cancer shortly after their 50th anniversary. As part of his healing process, he published his autobiography, “Risen from the Ashes, Tales of a Musical Messenger,” which aptly describes his great courage and indomitable will to survive. He married Nina, who has been by his side for 20 years. In all his years, Judaism, service to others and education have been his guiding values.
Hans is preceded in death by his parents, Max and Ida Cohn, and his wife, Eva Cohn. He is survived by his second wife, Nina, and his daughters Becki Cohn-Vargas (Rito Vargas), Ruth Cohn (Michael Lewin) and Barbara Liepman (Michael Liepman), and six grandchildren.
Donations can be sent in his memory to the Hans Cohn Music Fund and CBJ Cares Committee by going to the Congregation Beth Jacob website donation page at bethjacobrwc.org/donate.

Cause of Los Altos High grad's death remains a mystery - Los Altos Town Crier
Updated 12:41 p.m. Jan. 28
Authorities don't expect to receive autopsy results for another three to four weeks in the Jan. 17 death of a Los Altos High School graduate, an employee from the Santa Clara County Medical Examiner's office said Monday.
Eitan Weiner, a 19-year-old sophomore at Stanford, was pronounced dead at the scene by authorities responding to a report of a medical emergency Jan. 17 at Theta Delta Chi.
A preliminary investigation revealed no signs of foul play, Santa Clara County Sheriff’s Office representatives said in a statement later that day.&
A 2018 graduate of Los Altos High, Weiner was identified as the son of two Stanford employees in a statement the university released Jan. 20. His father, Amir Weiner, is an associate professor of history; his mother, Julia Erwin-Weiner, is an associate vice president for medical center development. She was previously a senior associate dean for external relations of Stanford Law School and before that a senior administrator at the School of Humanities and Sciences.

At Millbrook Farm in Concord, an early Christmas miracle - The Boston Globe
Until recently, the road was dug up and unpaved.AdvertisementOne longtime customer, Gail Keane, a local realtor, likened the turnpike to the twisted and treacherous Ho Chi Minh Trail. “You couldn’t get here,” she said.Shaun Giurleo, 50, Sal’s youngest son, estimates that by midsummer and fall, sales had plunged 90 percent. At their lowest point, they saw no more than one customer a day. Sal had to take out two loans, totaling $52,000, to keep the business afloat. They had no choice but to sell their flowers and plants wholesale at a fraction of the price they would normally charge their customers. To make matters worse, two months ago, Sal’s wife, Jean, 79, slipped and fell on the kitchen floor at their house next door and broke her hip.AdvertisementThe Giurleos prepared for a tight Christmas. Sal worried he would have to take out another loan and sink deeper into debt. He was determined to stay open, no matter the cost.In late November, news of the Giurleo family’s plight proliferated across Facebook, Nextdoor, and e-mail as residents of Concord and beyond urged their friends and neighbors to patronize the struggling Millbrook Farm.“Remember MILLBROOK FARM down the Cambridge Turnpike just past the Concord Museum? They could use your business,” a typical Facebook post went, before relaying the story of the Giurleos’ predicament.Bobby Giurleo (left) carried a Christmas tree for a customer. Suzanne Kreiter/Globe staff“I hope you will consider purchasing your tree, wreath, and other seasonal decorations at MILLBROOK FARM this season and hopefully this small, local business can continue to stay in business.”The Giurleos’ Christmas miracle arrived early, on the Wednesday before Thanksgiving. Millbrook Farm was unusually busy for a weekday, which Shaun thought was odd. But nothing could have prepared the Giurleos for what happened on the Friday after the holiday. From 9 a.m. until sundown, cars parked up and down the turnpike, as many as 20 at time. The crowds were unlike anything they’d ever seen, driving from as far as Natick and Saugus.It was the busiest day in Millbrook Farm’s history. Shaun guesses they sold between 350 and 400 Christmas trees, about half their lot. Saturday was even busier.AdvertisementBy the end of the weekend, they had sold...
