Your Dad was a very special man. I remember all the times I stayed overnite with you, Linda on Friday nights. We would go out to eat then go with your folks and do the weekly shopping. He never seemed to mind an extra passenger tagging along. Bernie will be missed by all who know and loved him. My prayers and sympathies to all of you. Love Cindy
