Adam Cohen writes of his father’s “approachable elegance” and his “old-world gentlemanliness” in emotional open letter.

Leonard Cohen’s son 44-year-old son, Adam, paid tribute to his late father with a touching Facebook message over the weekend.

The Canadian troubadour died on Monday, November 7, although it wasn’t publicly announced until four days later following a private funeral in Montreal. Cohen was 82.

Writing on Facebook, Adam said: “My sister and I just buried my father in Montreal. With only immediate family and a few lifelong friends present, he was lowered into the ground in an unadorned pine box, next to his mother and father. Exactly as he’d asked…There’s so much I wish I could thank him for, just one last time.”
