It is with deep sadness and a heavy heart that we come together to acknowledge the recent tragedy that has impacted our community. Our thoughts and heartfelt condolences are extended to the family of Pam and Bill Cohen, as well as to all those who have been affected by this profound loss.

Bill Cohen held significant roles within our community, serving as both a town selectman and a volunteer member of the Library’s board of trustees, as well as our dedicated capital campaign chair. The news of this devastating event has left the library’s board, committee members, staff, and the entire Brooklin community in a state of shock and sorrow.

It is crucial that we stand together as a united community, offering support to the Cohen family during this difficult period. Despite feelings of confusion and sadness, let us hold dear the memories of the joy and dedication Pam and Bill brought to our community. Their absence will be deeply felt. May we find solace and strength in each other as we navigate this time of grief and healing.

We recognize and appreciate Bill’s tireless dedication to the Library’s future and are committed to continuing the important work he led with unwavering enthusiasm.

With heartfelt condolences,
All of us at Friend Memorial Public Library
