I always enjoyed the light banter with Uncle Bert. His wry humour always brought a chuckle. A great guy, loved by all. Bill Mattina

Dear Buist Family, Our heartfelt condolences to the entire family. We are so sorry to hear of Bert's passing. He had a long and full life. He loved his family dearly. Their home was always open and welcoming to all! We "dropped in" many a time, sitting around the pool, sharing stories! Lots of stories! He will be truly missed. We will not be able to be with you on the day, but please know that our thoughts and prayers are with you. Sincerely, Lorna and Michael O'Connell
