  2. To Harriet, Robin, Heather, Dr.Neil, Jake, and Sydnee: There are no words I can find to express my most heartfelt sympathy of the passing of my dear friend Burt. My heart aches for all of you. Burt was like a father to me in the office.(FCB) He always gave me such good advice, even at the times when I did not want to accept his advice but deep in my heart I knew that he was right as usual. Burt is in a better place now and I will keep the entire family in my thoughts and in my prayers. With much love and hugs. My most heartfelt sympathy. (Patty Wilkins)

  3. I met Burt in 1950. We were neighbors and became best friends. We did just about everything together. We belonged to the Jewish Community House in Bensonhurst, Brooklyn where we used to go to the teen rooms. It was there that Burt taught me how to dance. He was a great dancer. We did other things together also like going to concerts, spending summers in Coney Island on the beach. We grew up and eventually went our separate ways. I had been searching for Burt for several years and found him not too long ago only to lose him again. My heart goes out to his wife Harriet and his children and grandchildren. He loved you so much. Rest In Peace my best childhood friend.

  4. Burt and I only met the past few years, after I had my sleeve surgery with Dr. Neil, Burt asked me to contribute to the newsletter. That led to a really deep friendship, albeit over a distance. We actually only met in person three times but each time I left smiling just having spent some time with him. We exchanged many emails over the past few years and during the Covid lockdown we were planning on getting together for a steak and a fine wine. My heart is breaking for his family, and yes, a little bit for me. I will miss my friend. The world is a much darker place today.

  5. Its like you learn my mind! You appear to understand so much approximately
    this, such as you wrote the e-book in it or something.
    I think that you just can do with some p.c. to force the message home a bit,
    however other than that, this is magnificent blog. A fantastic read.
    I’ll definitely be back. rj (
