My family and I wanted to extend our deepest condolences to all of you during this sad and difficult time. Burt was a very kind man. I first met him as a young surgeon and was impressed with him as a physician and colleague. Later I had the opportunity to see him after retirement as a doting grandfather attending his grandchildren's school and sports events. He excelled in both roles.
