So very sad to hear if sweet Bernie’s passing. We, too, have such wonderful memories of times with Bernie and Donny. Bernie will always be remembered as a gentle soul who enjoyed making others feel welcomed and entertained. His creativity and kindness for the little creatures – animals, flowers children were so appreciated by our little family. We will miss him so much.
I have wonderful memories that took place in Don and Bernie’s home. They were a big part of my youth. When I think of Bernard I always picture him with a big smile on his face. Don, I am so sorry for your loss. May he rest in peace.
