So many memories of Bernie, golf trips to New York and Michigan, listening to his stories, being the recipient of his pranks and Evelyn and I sitting on the deck with Mary and Bernie enjoying some beer and wine.
I valued Bernie’s friendship he was a one off and I will miss him.
My thoughts are with all of the Connan family.
