Burt was one of my roommates at Dartmouth College. I only saw him once after graduation, and then we lost touch. My wife Marci and I send our deepest condolences to his family.

The death of my Duke Law School classmate Burt Albert acts as an unfortunate reminder that more good intentions founder upon the rocks of procrastination than from all other causes combined. During the past seven years, I have traveled through Roanoke on numerous occasions on my way between New Jersey and Harlan KY for visits with a grandson. Each time I passed by Roanoke, it occurred to me that I should stop to have lunch with Burt by way of appreciation for his assistance in filing suit on behalf of a client of mine who had suffered the misfortune of being rear-ended on two separate occasions while she was a student in the Norfolk area.

Burt and I had been no more than friendly acquaintances during our days together at Duke Law School, but he readily provided necessary assistance until I was able to obtain counsel in Virginia Beach to proceed with those cases. From my one visit to Burt's office for that purpose, I realized his passion for golf. Although he was not to my knowledge otherwise athletically inclined, I recall vividly his enthusiasm for the football and basketball teams of the University of Iowa. If he were to don a team jersey, there is no doubt in my mind that his choice would not have been the Big Green of his undergraduate alma mater Dartmouth, or the Devil's Blue of Duke, but the gold and black of his beloved Hawkeyes. Whenever I watch an Iowa game, it will bring to mind someone I recall as their ardent and well informed fan from Sioux City.

Burt and I were best friends growing up in Sioux City. And while we rarely communicated over the years (most recently as Facebook friends), I will always value Burt's friendship, and remember with fondness (and laughter) our joyous youth. I am so very saddened by the news of his passing, and my thoughts and prayers are with his family.

I am saddened to hear of Mr. Albert's passing. He was a wonderful, down-to-earth man. It was a pleasure working with him and I greatly enjoyed all the wonderful stories he would tell me, especially the one about him being on Jeopardy. Our thoughts and prayers to Melinda and the rest of his family.
