I am Sara’s oldest sister, and my family so fondly remembers Lou and Mimi Braverman at their wedding and in Boston and Gloucester. They were both so compassionate and engaged in life. We salute them both. Love, Mary, Bill, Julia and Emma,

Dear Mimi and family,
Norma and I cannot put into words the grand presence that Lew held in so many venues, from medical societies throughout the world, to contacts with his patients and hospital staff, to personal friendships with a host of people with many backgrounds and, with you, to his family. He had a sincere way of making everyone he came in contact with feel that they were special and, with groups, was the life of the party. Like so many others I treasured his friendship, counsel and direction and am deeply grateful for his support and generosity over many years. Norma and I are profoundly sad in his passing but his many legacies are alive in our memories and in so many other settings.

Dear Mimi and Braverman Family,
Lew (aka Dr. B; uncle Lew) was my lifelong mentor, from fellowship through various careers.
I most cherished the opportunity to work with him again for 15 years at Boston Medical Center.
Words cannot describe the immeasurable impact he had on the lives and careers of his trainees.
He was adored by his patients, who steadfastly followed him through his various positions.
While a brilliant scientist and investigator, he never lost the heart and soul of what it means to be a physician and healer.
We will miss him terribly but recalling our experiences with him will always bring a smile to our faces.
May your family find comfort in the universal acknowledgement of his kindness and generosity and a life well-lived.
Elliot Sternthal

Dear Mimi--My heartfelt condolences on Lew's passing. We go back a long way to Auburn Court--1958--61 years ago!! Our families even longer. Lewis was not only a legend in Medicine/endocrinology but a sweet wonderful guy with a great sense of humor--from when I first met him when he was a resident on the Harvard service at the Boston City Hospital to Auburn Court, to my being involved in endocrine surgery, to our visits together, and to my having Chinese food in Chinatown during occasional visits to Boston. He was a great and loved teacher and mentor to students, residents, and especially his endocrine fellows at UMass, the Brigham, and BU. His was a scholarly, academic medical, clinical life well and long lived. I send you my condolences and love.. Walter Goldfarb MD
