Aunt Ann and family,
We are so sorry to hear of Uncle Bernie’s passing – he always had a smile and joke to share. I remember the times I stayed with you & Uncle Bernie when I was younger – making chocolate sodas and getting my own pair of rubber gloves to wash dishes! and our visits on Sundays to your home. Know that our prayers and thoughts are with you and the family. All our love, Annie & Tim

Ann and Dave&Family,
I am sorry to hear of your loss. I can remember walking past Bernie’s Barber Shop as I walked to my grandma’s he would always make sure no cars were coming when I crossed the street. He sometimes would slip me a sucker now and then. Our prayers are with you.
