Thinking of you and the wonderful memories I have of your family. Both Bob and Bernie had the warmest smiles and made me feel special as a young girl. Sincere condolences losing a special man.

My thoughts and prayers are with you at this difficult time. The God of the Bible promises us a time when we will be reunited with our loved ones…Isaiah 25:8 “He will swallow death forever, and the The Sovereign Lord will wipe away the tears from all faces.” and John 5:28: "... all those in the memorial tomb will hear his voice and come out ". God promises a future time when there will be no more pain and grief due to the death of a love one! The former things have passed away.” My heartfelt condolences and prayers for family and friends.
