I recently learned of Lens passing. He was an important figure in my professional life and I often think about his kind natured guidance. Len and I shared many a cigar, and met for coffee a handful of times In NYC between 2013-2015. We worked together for several years prior to that when he managed the acquisition of our family business back in 2004. His memory will live on with me and I wish the family (many of whom I met over the years) the most sincere condolences. With honor, John Burke Jr
