My deepest condolences to the family. I am heartbroken by this news. Mr. Burman was great friends with my mom who was his assistant at Agassiz for many years. I was fortunate to be able to spend time with him over those years and he became a member of the family. Mr. Burman came to my graduations, and helped financially to put me through college. I then had to pleasure of working alongside him at The Chicago Academy. He was an honored guest at my wedding ♥️ He will be incredibly missed but I will always remember him as one of the kindest, most supportive and generous humans I have ever known.
