    Sorry to hear of Dr. Lambert. I hold fond memories of him in his home office working or having a cigar when I came to visit. He was always inviting for me to join in the household full of other teenagers. One of my favorite times was when he would come home after grocery shopping and he would crack open the best watermelons!
    My condolences to all his children.
