Bernie was generous enough to share his knowledge and wisdom with some of us at UIC about ten years ago. He helped me learn a critical eye for drama in all its forms, and he helped me to speak of it confidently. He also told me my favorite joke: "How many surrealists does it take to screw in a lightbulb? Fish."

I teach high school today, and I try and take some of what Bernie shared with me to pass on to my students. He shook my hand and told me that I was then six handshakes away from Beethoven--now I shake hands with young people and try and give them kindness and guidance as Bernie did for us. Thank you, Bernie.

I knew Bernie from a different part of his life-as a tennis enthusiast. When I worked at Lincoln Park Tennis Club in the early 60's Bernie would show up looking for a game and I had the pleasure of playing with him many times. He was a pure delight.

Jane, I am thinking of you and all the fun we had when I was at Second City, 1978-80. You & Bernie have made a difference in my life. Love, Sandra Bogan "Boom Boom"
