" > I WISH I COULD BE THERE FOR THE SERVICE. MY LOVE TO ALL MY FAMILY MEMBERS, ESPECIALLY MY COUSIN MICHELLE. THANK GOD FOR MEMORIES.

" > I am so sorry I could not be there. I knew my cousin Bert was many things. Brilliant psychology professor, wickedly funny, practical joker, humble, so humble, and so helpful. I have so many memories. I remember his wedding to Celia, who is my first love. I was five years old and my brother was crying. I remember the house in the canyon. And I remember hanging out with cousin Bert when I was at UCLA and how he gave me this little 6 mm strip of cells and that I should pick one for a cover of the journal he edited. I could not figure out what I was looking at. I returned and told him of my befuddlement. He told me that he did not understand why I could not see the nude women in cellophane and then told me he may have neglected to tell me the issue was going to be on pornography. When I was at UCSD and writing my honors thesis my cousin Bert was extremely helpful to me in creating a questionnaire, polling protocols, and the like. Then he called and told me of a colloquium at UCLA with a professor who is a preeminent psychologist in the area of my research and that I could attend. I took him up on his offer. I knew cousin Bert was a pretty important social psychologist. But he arranged the colloquium and arranged for his friend, this prominent Harvard professor, to conduct the colloquium. He had not told me this beforehand. I do not know whether this was due to his sly sense of humor or his humility. I will leave my stories at that. One last thing, Bert was a fierce behind the scenes defender of Israel at UCLA. There is so much to admire about him. He leaves such a legacy. This is a profoundly sad time for his family and friends and marks the passing of a true giant in society and academia. My love to all of the Ravens
