I read. I laughed. I reposted.

Because of the comment a friend made when I posted that, I followed the link down two layers and read this man’s obit.

Which began with “The meaning of life is ‘OOPS!'”

This “Chiropractor to the Stars” lived in my hometown and his obituary is hands down one of the best I’ve ever read.

Trust me, If I ever met a man like that … who was interested in me … I’d marry him in a heartbeat. And I’ve been marriage-averse for most years since my 1990 divorce!!!

… idly wonders if there really might be someone like that out there …

At any rate, here are a few excerpts from the obituary and a link to it if you want to read the whole thing.


“The meaning of life is ‘OOPS!'” was the preeminent philosophy of Jeffrey H. Cohen, D.C., who unexpectedly passed away Sunday morning at age 70 in the Squirrel Hill home where he was raised. He bids “so long but not goodbye” to his fabulous wife, Carol Chisholm Cohen;

… He joins his parents, Dr. Harold and Harriet Cohen in the next world.

… As a teenager, Jeff spent his summers working at Bear Creek Ranch in Montana, where he learned to ride horses, chew tobacco, and “shovel more horse manure than you’ve ever seen in your life.” He took pride in being the only Jewish cowboy that he knew of.

… Jeff opened his private practice on April Fools Day 1976, and would often joke that in those early years he had two waiting rooms: one where the patients would wait, and one where he would wait for the patients.

… Jeffrey wooed his wife Carol by singing her cowboy songs on his Martin guitar.

… Compassionate and kind, Jeffrey always put others before himself, happily and without hesitation. He had a special, healing touch and he brought relief to thousands of people over the decades.

… He was also a voracious teller of jokes of all kinds, especially dirty and groan-inducing ones. He had a great smile and all his teeth were still his.
