    Berk Brother Bob informs that it is Irv Lipoff [Sue Hoffman’s husband] in the breakfast reunion picture.

  2. Barbara Stewart said,

    I was WAY too young for the Berk twins to remember me, but I remember during 1960 Color “Contest” that there was a football game, and one of the twins was on the team that lost and was so devastated, he just lay prone on the field for I don’t know how long. Whichever Berk you were, do you remember this incident?

  3. Bob Berk said,

    Don’t know if I answered this but… I don’t recall with clarity something that happened in one minute approxinately 50 years ago.

  4. Barbara Burton Stewart said,

    I remember the small details of 50 years ago – I don’t remember the big details of 5 minutes ago.

  5. Bob Berk said,

    I understand completely.
