The Salny. Feldberg. Stern families go back over 70 years. My grandparents Sam and Rae Salny were inseparable friends of Max and Betty Feldberg and hence their daughter and son in law Barbara and Burt. My nana Rae waxed poetically throughout her life about her long-standing close friendship with the feldberg family even recounting the day that she met Burt and he after nana Rae's death writing to our family about his fond memories of her and the fun times he and Barbara had with her and max and Betty. Last July I hosted a luncheon in Baltimore for Jonathan who was visiting me. The guests were all childhood friends of his dads and they reminisced about Burt all afternoon. My mother June and I grieve with the stern family and wish that good memories help the family cope with their loss of Burt.
