Dear Joan, We were stunned to hear about Bert, and want to extend our deepest sympathy and sincere condolences to you and your family as you face your loss. We were delighted to see you and Bert at the new Le Yaca last year, and fondly recall many earlier similar encounters. It was always a pleasure to visit with you and Bert, and earlier, to see him regularly when he was serving at local elections.

The Manhattan College alumni community shares the grief, and is now praying for our fellow alumni and the family at this time. The Alumni Office has been informed. As well as the Jasper Jottings community that I personally can reach. We are all a little poorer now. "No man is an island, entire of itself ... any mans death diminishes me". We are sorry for your loss.
