Dear Jeff,

Thank you for this message, though it is a very sad one. 

Bernie (I adressed him like that on my few comments adressed to him on RADSAFE and he never refuted this) has been an extraordinary scientist - whether one agreed or not with his findings. At least it stimulated discussion and further research. 

I had the privilege to meet him at a meeting in Vienna many, many years ago. In spite of his age he was very lively and - as everybody knows - mentally fully available. 

I think that this is primarily a loss to his family, but secondarily a loss to science.
