Not sure what to say?

Nitze and family
Although time moves on, our memories of Averys smile, humor, passion for medicine and love of his family prevail. He so missed but never forgotten
Alan and Suzanne Aquilina

Universally loved. He was one of the kindest, most genuine individuals I've ever met. I am so sorry.

Dr. Ellis was one of the most universally beloved professors at the medical school. He enriched the lives of so many students who were fortunate enough to know him, and he inspired us to be better doctors and better people.

Nitza and family,
Such a devastating time for all of you. I did not know Avery personally, but through my mothers eyes I knew him. She had such respect for him and all of you and always had kind words. His death is profound and so sad. My prayers are with all of you, as well as MaryAnn, Laura and Neal. I hope you will find peace in the memories he left and the love you shared.
sincerely, Yvonne (Riexinger) Bova

However, what I will always remember most was the warmth of his welcome when I first arrived in Buffalo. I was forever impressed by his candor and humility especially since he was always the smartest person in the room. Yet his...
