Bernie and family - Those we love don't go away, they walk beside us every day. Unseen, unheard, but always near, still loved, still missed and very dear.
Our thoughts are with you now and always.
All our love
Doug and Linda

What moves through us is a silence, a quiet sadness, a longing for just one more day, one more word, one more hug. We may not understand why he left this earth before we were ready to say goodbye, but little by little, we begin to remember that his life gave each one of us memories too beautiful to ever forget.

Our thoughts and prayers are with you, your family, and your many friends, today and always.
