Seated with Bert at an event, a few years ago, we were touched by the number of younger people who come up to him and reminisced about his influence in their lives. He was a prince among men, and made a real difference in many lives. Rest in peace. Condolences to Bert's family and friends. Richard and Gwen Clarke
