My parents ,Leon and Frieda Cohen called Bert and Fran dear friends. I am sending my sympathy to your dear family on behalf of my family. I remember Bert as a very dear sweet man.

My father, Harold Melnicove, loved Bert, he really did. And I think the feeling was mutual. I'm sure it wasn't easy, but Bert went to my father's funeral a year ago. I was so comforted by his presence (and so grateful to his son for bringing him). It was classic Bert: kind, generous, gentle, and respectful. My dad treasured his friendship, as did my brother Gary and I, and immensely enjoyed all the Gin games with Bert and the times with him and Frances. With deepest sympathy, Margo Melnicove
