My family moved to Michigan from Boston in 1989. A mentor from University of Massachusetts recommended that I give Dr. Bernard Naylor a call to ask for his advice regarding my young career as a pathologist. Dr. Naylor surprised us with an invitation to their home, where he served us tea and biscuits as we exchanged conversation about profession and family. I will always be grateful to Dr. Naylor for the career direction that he inspired me to pursue.

I just learned of Bernie's passing. We became friend's when he decided to return to playing bassoon for enjoyment after the several decades of his stellar career as a world renowned pathologist (sans bassoon). Bernie took on his return the bassoon with a passion. I often saw Bernie and Paz at concerts and at bassoon masterclasses. One year I drove him to the annual International Double Reed Society conference which he always enjoyed attending. Bernie would often be found sitting in the front row of a masterclass or recital. His return to music brought him into contact with the legendary U of M bassoon professor L. Hugh Cooper with whom be became a friend. Bernie's long absence from the bassoon precluded him becoming a great player. Nevertheless, he enjoyed it very much, it opened a new world to him, and we should all have such passion for something artistic, creative, and beautiful when we retire. I'll miss Bernie and will remember him fondly and with admiration. My sincere condolences to Paz and their family.
