HONORING OUR PATRIARCH

DEAR ANCESTOR

by Walter Butler Palmer
Your tombstone stands among the rest;
Neglected and alone.
The name and date are chiseled out
On polished, marbled stone.
It reaches out to all who care
It is too late to mourn.
You did not know that I exist
You died and I was born.
Yet each of us are cells of you
In flesh, in blood, in bone.
Our blood contracts and beats a pulse
Entirely not our own.
Dear Ancestor, the place you filled
One hundred years ago
Spreads out among the ones you left
Who would have loved you so.
I wonder if you lived and loved,
I wonder if you knew
That someday I would find this spot,
And come to visit you.

  OUR ENTIRE EXTENDED COMINSKY FAMILY IS SADDENED BY HER LOSS







We have only recently learned of the passing of

Dr. Burton (Bernard) Combes (15).  


 Dr. Combes was a leader in the field of hepatology.  His passing on November 23, 2013 was the  subject of an extensive AASLD JOURNAL article  found HERE.







     In November of 2010, to mark the anniversary of his passing,  a group of Cominsky family members gathered in Maspeth,  Queens, NY to honor our patriarch, Shmoel Shoel.  His final  resting place is in the United Hebrew Community section  of Mount Zion Cemetery (Path 28R, Gate 16).  His grave stone  is marked in both Hebrew and English as follows:

[Hebrew inscription]

"Here lies

A man, old, pure, and honest

Our dear teacher Shmoel Shoel son of Yehuda

Died 27 Heshvan 5673

​May his soul be bound up in the bonds of Zion"

[English Inscription]

In Memory of

Our Beloved Father

Samuel S. Cominsky

Died November 7, 1912

Age 94
