Dear friends,

Our community has lost one of the most brilliant minds of the twentieth
century.   Paul J. Cohen conveyed his message that the continuum hypothesis
is "obviously false" and endowed us  with the power and beauty of
forcing. His was and will remain   a pillar of the grandeur of modesty in my memory.

Best regards,
S. Kutateladze
