Meeting Mr. Rabkin at Morton’s Panaderia, October 2015.

We didn’t know Morton Rabkin well, having met him only recently as Mariah and I explored Panama & Boquete last fall, then recently as Mortie ‘The Rye Guy’ peddled his wares at Tuesday Market. But judging from the reaction of the community at his passing, and the outpouring of sympathy from friends & fellow Boquetenan’s, we’re sad too, that we didn’t get to know him well, and that our community has lost a real friend.

“Blessed is the True Judge,”as our Jewish friends say. RIP Morton Rabkin, we’ll miss you, even if we did not know you well.
