I've known and worked with Dr. Buckman for 35 years, with my wife, Dr. Grace H. Akiens.
We always enjoyed his company, and we would share interesting cases.
He will be greatly missed.

My memories of Jeffrey are from our work together at Camp Moshava. We worked together many summers and he was always great to work with. He also provided me with professional support when I needed a medical opinion and always treated me as a professional. His humor is what I remember most. May G-d comfort you among the mourners of Zion and Jerusalem.

Dear Myrna and Buckman Family-

My thoughts and prayers go out to you at this difficult time with the passing of Dr B.

His compassionate for his work and helping people (especially his family) was always constant in our conversation and evident throughout his life. I will truly miss our annual (or sometimes more than annual visits) meetings and his perspectives of the daily meaning of life and his impact within my life.

I hope that all his loved ones will truly find the comfort and peace by recollecting all the special & rewarding times shared in Dr. B's life. Yes, he will greatly be missed and hope that all his loved ones find comfort with his memories.
