Dear Eleanor and family,

I just read about Beryl's passing today. My family sends its deepest condolences.

Beryl was a terrific man and mentor to me. I looked up to him and enjoyed the many evenings we played clarinet together.

I hope we can meet again whenever you are comfortable and ready to do so.

G-d bless you and your family.

Beryl always had a smile on his face. We were musicians in the Atlanta Concert Band and fellow attorneys. He loved playing in the band. My sincere condolences to his family. May his memory be a blessing.

Beryl was a very kind man. I will miss the conversations we had in band. (I sat 2 chairs down from him in the Atlanta Concert Band). My deepest condolences to the entire family.

Beryl was a good man. I will forever remember him as an inspiration. I first met him in 2008 as a fellow Fulton County Employee and it was as if we had known each other for years. He is leaving this world better than he found it and I am grateful for that. May God bless your family, loved ones and friends.

Beryl was a friend and a mentor to me as a fellow attorney representing Fulton County government. He took his duty to the public very seriously, was a credit to the Georgia Bar, and will be greatly missed by all who knew him.

I remember Beryl as a friend of my father's, who befriended our entire family. He always had a smile and kind words to share. He leaves an amazing legacy in the impacts he had on many families, in the legal realm, as well as the larger community.
