My deepest condolences. That’s a wonderful obit for your father, I never met him (but enjoy his paintings) and only know you through your online writing, but he inspires me to be a better teacher, father and man. Thank you.

Vitaliy - so sorry about your loss. Magnificent tribute. When I watched the video, the date of your father's birth struck me. To be born in Soviet Russia in 1933 was a kind of hell. It made me wonder - what do you know of Naum's parents? They had to be special people to impart their personalities onto your father, and now farther downstream. Be well.

I love his art! With such a personality as he had. The beauty of his human traits are expressed in his paintings. I saw that the first time I saw one of his works of art. We all die and such a great memory to last forever in our own travels on this planet. Thanks for sharing.
