Michel M.J. Shore

A Tribute in Memory of Martin (Miki) Pepper (Mordechai ben Mendel Ber v’Hannah)

What can be written that has not been said?

Miki brought light to all in his midst.

What a prize crown of a human being!

Who with his eyes radiated pure joy.


His passion for life ignited hope,

Instilled courage, by giving confidence.

Each person, he treated as a treasure trove,

Whose strength, he enhanced with few chosen words.


His love of family, community,

Humanity at large, exemplary.

In math, he found passion in resolution,

As to all, in giving life to existence.


Dear Miki, you left a very large void,

To fill, by who you were, thus, who we could be!
