Since the pandemic, I've been walking a lot (8-10 miles per day) in my beloved Devonwood, and I pass the Bloom's house many times. I always think about Bucky, and what a great man he was, and hope his family are all doing well.

My deepest sympathies. May the God of all comfort strengthen the entire family during this time of sorrow. Always remember that God keeps in his memory those whom we lose because they are precious in his eyes. (Psalms 116:15)

Our thoughts and prayers are with the Bloom family during this sad time. Your parents are together again and that must be comforting. Dr. Bloom was my doctor here in Miami for so many years until he retired. He was a wonderful doctor and became a good friend to myself and occasionally saw my husband who was a longtime patient of Dr. Robert Salzman. They are both extraordinary people who cared deeply about their patients. My sincere sympathy to you all on the loss of your parents. Blessings.
