    I am sad to hear of Burt's passing and send my sincerest condolences to his family. I remember Burt as kind, calm and so generous with his time and his keen attention. His smile warmed every room. I imagine all who knew him, including me, will always have him in our heart.

    It was my pleasure to get to know and care for Mr. Gershon these last few months as he was nearing the end of his last chapter in this great book of life. Burt, as he liked to be called, had so many friends at Brighton Gardens. He spoke lovingly of his family especially his sister and niece, daughter, son but especially his grandson. Burts heart burst with pride whenever he talked about his grandson. Burts recounting last years birthday meal at Bones’s with him was a total delight. Mr. Gershon is a kind warm soul. He faced his mortality with great spiritual strength and wisdom. Rest peacefully my friend. To his family, please accept my condolences. Rosie Kamman, Weinstein Hospice
