Dear Deb, Michael, Wendy, Marge & Family,

Although it’s been years, time has not diminished the joy of knowing and working alongside my friend, Burt. My years at the Pottery Bazaar were so enjoyable. Time spent with Burt and the crew are indelible memories, which I cherish, as is his fun spirit and that “Corny” sense of humor he shared with us all. In his honor, I’ll close using the nickname he gave me, on my first day there. It is with a heavy heart that I send my deepest regrets for your loss.

With my most sincere thoughts,

Dear Marge and family, I remember Burton very well and was sorry to read of his passing. It was always a pleasure to see him and with his help, shop at the Pottery Bazaar. I also remember Nancy’s untimely passing. So sad. Please accept my most heartfelt sympathy. May Burt and Nancy’s memories be for a blessing. May they Rest In Peace. Marcie Sugarmann
