We are incredibly grateful for the love, support, prayers, visits, and food sent to us. We know CWS was with us all the way.
There would be no Gary and CWS without Roneet. She was the catalyst for me finding CWS and getting the job and I am convinced I would not have had the success I have had without her pushing me to keep improving, demanding more of myself and of others, and being a clear-headed sounding board to tell me when I was falling short. She also contributed to the company by her invaluable contributions to AIM, her way of being and work ethic that conveyed she held herself to the highest standards and expected that of others, and the relationships she formed with our employees, their spouses, as well as some of our investors.
The financial success I have experienced was only meaningful to me for two reasons. It was a byproduct of the collective idea generation and execution of those ideas in ways that generated a lot of value to our investors. And on a more personal level, it was a way of creating more options for Roneet and I and our kids to help us grow and live life more meaningfully. My material desires are modest but when partnered with Roneet the entire world opened up to us. With her gone it will never be the same as the fruits of my labor can now no longer be shared together.
She loved the people at CWS so much and, as she formed even deeper relationships with many of our folks over the last few years, it became another aspect of our lives that became more intertwined. I want to thank them for being so warm and open to her.
CWS helped bring us even closer together and for that, I will forever be grateful.

If you would like to make a donation in Roneet’s honor, the Carmell family has requested donations be made to the following charitable organizations.
The Akbari Lab at UC Irvine School of Medicine Department of Neurology: www.akbarilab.org. The “Donate” button can be found at the bottom of the page. Donating via this link will specifically allocate your donation to Akbari Lab’s research revolving around investigating mechanisms underlying consciousness, coma, and global stroke with a focus on cardiac arrest and cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR).
Why? Dr. Akbari responded to an email from a family friend who is a doctor to see if he could come and evaluate Roneet and give the Carmell family a second opinion. He responded to the email that night and came the next day and was so extraordinary and helped bring closure for the family. Dr. Akbari is the embodiment of Hineni!
