Condolences & Memories (4 entries)

  • I just became aware of Bertie's death and I wish my deepest condolences to Doris, Jeremy, Cindy and all of the family. Bertie and I shared an office at Harvard Law School with Bill Champion of Mississippi, and Joerg Mueller of Bern, Switzerland. We studied together and had a lot of laughter. Bertie was such a "wit" and kept us all laughing.--Those are good memories.--Another on of my "stars" has fallen.

  • It is with a very sad heart that I write this note. Burtie was a true gentleman, a great teacher and a wonderful human being. Our entire class loved Burtie as he was a permanent fixture at all of our parties and more recently at our class renewals. One of my favorite memories is when we went duck hunting together, I can assure all that we was not a born hunter.The world is a better place because of his presence. Our deepest sympathy to Doris and all of his family as he will truly missed especially that wonderful little smile.
