Sandra Jo Streeter,

As you may have read in the news media, Leonard Cohen passed away last week.  I intend to file motions to terminate the fraudulent restraining orders.  That will include, but is not limited to, any criminal protection order you requested from LA Superior Court.  These orders have evidently been transmitted into state and federal databases so that issue needs to be cleared up.  While the fraudulent domestic violence matter, and my motion to vacate, is under appeal, this is an entirely separate issue.

Department 51 instructed me to contact the individual at the City Attorney's Office who handled this case.  That's you.  They advised me to ask for dates that might be convenient for you to attend a hearing.  

Let me know if there are any convenient dates.  Otherwise, I will let the court know that, as usual, the City Attorney's office refuses to communicate with me.

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. As I write this I’m thinking of my father’s unique blend of self-deprecation and dignity, his approachable elegance, his charisma without audacity, his old-world gentlemanliness and the hand-forged tower of his work. There’s so much I wish I could thank him for, just one last time. I’d thank him for the comfort he always provided, for the wisdom he dispensed, for the marathon conversations, for his dazzling wit and humor. I’d thank him for giving me, and teaching me to love Montreal and Greece. And I’d thank him for music; first for his music which seduced me as a boy, then for his encouragement of my own music, and finally for the privilege of being able to make music with him. Thank you for your kind messages, for the outpouring of sympathy and for your love of my father.

Leonard Cohen buried quietly on Thursday in Montreal

News of Cohen’s death became known to the public Thursday night but he died on Monday.

Fri., Nov. 11, 2016

Leonard Cohen had already been buried at a Montreal cemetery before his death became publicly known.
The legendary singer-songwriter received a graveside memorial service on Thursday, according to a statement released by Congregation Shaar Hashomayim, an Orthodox synagogue in Montreal’s Westmount neighbourhood of which he “was a beloved and revered member.”
Cohen died on Monday in Los Angeles, though his death at age 82 was only made public on Thursday night in a post on Facebook.

The evidence of his burial lies beneath a conspicuous covering of fallen brown leaves in front of an unmarked gravestone, which cover the unsettled earth, wet cement and the tracks of an industrial digger. 
Though an official at the cemetery refused to confirm the location of the singer’s gravesite when questioned by the Star on Friday, it appears to sit in a Cohen family plot that sits just through the front gates of the Jewish cemetery near the base of Mount Royal.

“Leonard’s wish was to be laid to rest in a traditional Jewish rite beside his parents, grandparents and great-grandparents,” read the statement released Friday by Rabbi Adam Scheier and Cantor Gideon Zelermyer, who sings background vocals on the title track of Cohen’s recent album, You Want it Darker.
Marie Mazur, a friend of the musician who runs the fan site Speaking Cohen, said the funeral was for family only.

“He was a wonderful guy,” Mazur said. “Basically, what you saw on stage, in interviews, that was who he was and more. He was just a very kind, generous person.”

Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau Pays Tribute to Leonard Cohen: "Canada and the World Will Miss Him"


Cohen died Thursday at the age of 82.

The music world has lost a giant, and Canada has lost a national treasure.
After news broke of the death of Leonard Cohen on Thursday night, Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau took to Twitter to mourn the loss of the 82-year-old singer-songwriter, who was born in Westmount, Quebec, and whose music was warmly embraced by his native country.
"No other artist's music felt or sounded like Leonard Cohen's. Yet his work resonated across generations," Trudeau wrote, in both English and French, on Twitter. "Canada and the world will miss him."

La musique de Leonard Cohen était comme nulle autre, mais a pourtant transcendé les générations. Le Canada et le monde pleurent son départ.

Trudeau also quoted a lyric from Cohen's best-known and most-covered song, "Hallelujah."
