Elaine and family I was so saddened to hear about Dr Hamburg's passing. He was a wonderful highly respected pediatrician and human being who exuded enthusiasm in whatever he did. It was an honor to work with him while I was at St Louis Children's Hospital. I truly valued his friendship! May all your special memories together give you comfort.

Elaine, Keith, and Bryan. Your family has my sincere condolences. I am so sorry I just learned of Fred's death today and did not know of the services for him. My heart breaks for all of your family. I will grieve Fred as much as everyone else who ever knew him. He treated his patients better than any other pediatrician and cared for the entire family in addition to his small patients. He was an example of a good man who always tried to make the world a better place for everyone. As Elaine probably knows, he was the pediatrician for 5 of my beloved nieces and nephews. His loss to Springfield and the entire state of Missouri will be felt by everyone who cared about this area. I recall reading several of his letters to the editors over the years ranging from the need for medicaid for families to environmental issues. When I was I was a young attorney, he taught me everything about child abuse and neglect and how to work for changes in the law. He taught me to care and how to work for the betterment of children and others in the community. His sense of humor will be missed by any one who ever met him and his sense of right and wrong are examples for everyone to follow. The world is in tears for the loss of Fred. I grieve for each of you who will feel his loss more than any one else.

OMG, i just saw this and am deeply saddened. I wish I would have known before to come to the service. He was my pediatrician for both my children and they loved him, as well as I did. They will be sad to hear this also. They really did love him and he took very good care of them. My prayers and condolences to all of you. We have lost a good soul.
