Dear Kathy and Kids,

I'm so sorry to hear the passing of Bernard. It brought back the memories at Canoga High where I met all of you. Going to the football games and cheering on Little B and Robert. Seeing Raul in the Canoga Band and talking with you, Bernard and Drea. Such wonderful memories.
Please accept my apologies for not attending the services, but know that my thoughts and prayers were there for Bernard and for all of you. May Bernard rest in peace and pray that one day you will all be together again.
Sincerely, Laura Ochoa

My dearest brother in law Bernard, you will truly be missed from all of us that loved you so dear. I am praying that you have reunited with your parents and brothers in heaven, and that you are now at peace. As I said before, there goes another Angel in heaven. P.S., make sure Ray behaves and tell him I miss and love him. Kathy and family, my deepest sympathy to you and the family. Sending my love and prayers to all. I love you all. Lil 😢🤗❤️🙏🏻

taking care of you all these years is something i'll never regret and i'd do it all over again if i had to.
we were always close (being i'm the only daughter and the baby of our family) but taking on the role to care for you, brought us even more closer.
the things we talked about, mom would always say "you talk to your dad about that? i never talked to my dad like that."
i was always open with you and you knew everything.
you were my true best friend and i'll continue to thank God for blessing me with you.
there was never a time when you weren't there for me, my brothers and especially mom.
like the time she had to have surgery and i fought with you cause you were unable to walk but you said "i want to see your mom and i am going to see her."
thank you for loving my brothers and i so much.
and for loving mom even more.
we are lost without you dad, but we are keeping eachother strong because we know thats what you would've wanted.
we have so many memories of you and hearing everyone else's memories of you bring us alot of happiness because you were such a great man Dad.
i have so many memories and stories but this post would be even longer. so i'll save it, for now.
this wasn't the outcome we had planned for you or would have even wanted for you.
i'm sorry covid kept us from being by your side and i'm sorry i couldn't protect you on this final one.
how am i suppose to go on without my best friend?
but please rest now Dad.
the boys and i got mom.
and i can't wait for the day we are reunited.
i love you so much Dad. i miss you so much.
and i'll be missing you forever. ❤

To the only person that I have loved, you were the best friend then my boyfriend then you became my husband then you were the best father to our three kids. My life has been turned upside down. I can’t wait until we are together again. Love you forever ♥️
