I am sorry for your loss. Death brings indescribable pain. Please know that God does promise, "He will wipe out every tear from our eyes and death will be no more, neither will mourning, nor outcry, nor pain be anymore. The former things have passed away." Imagine living with your loved one again without the fear of either of you dying. That is something to look forward to.

Dear Kahn family,
My memories of Dr. Kahn and his family gi back many years when I was their babysitter. Mr. Kahn was always so kind and thoughtful. When I celebrated 25 years as a Sister of Mercy, Mr. & Mrs Kahn came to my ceremony and I was very touched by their presence.
Please know my thoughts and prayers are with the family at this time.
Sincerely,
Sister Jane Kenrick, RSM

Fred Kahn inspired many people in their careers and their personal lives across the years. I was one. As a very young director of insurance in Illinois I was sent by other state insurance commissioners to meet Fred in his role as "inflation czar." After one brief meeting I came away with a life-long lesson in how to take a problem seriously while not taking myself too seriously and also what it meant to take on an impossible or even ridiculous mission with elan and commitment. Later, when I chaired the Illinois utility comisison I came to know Fred much better. I still see as my proudest profesisonal achievement applying Fred's ideas about airline competition in the fields of telecom, gas and eventually electricity. We stayed in touch a bit in the decades that followed and crossed paths in our work. He always offered gentle guidance along with a good chuckle. Fred Kahn was a great and wonderful man. I send my sympathy and my best regards to Fred's family and friends.

To Dr. Kahn's family
He was a wonderful man and did so much good for us all. My condolences to you.
I met him on a flight from Ithaca to Philadelphia. It took me some time to introduce myself but I finally did and told him I had admired his politics for decades. We talked for most of the flight and at one point he said he had been blessed with wonderful jobs throughout life. He was headed to his daughter's and family in Vt. and he had a twinkle in his when he spoke of her.
Warm regards,
Kathy Barbieri, Richford, NY
