Our Uncle Bernie McAda and I stayed in touch through Facebook in his later years. I always felt comforted by his wisdom and support, whenever I needed it. When he was in his 20's - 30's he would visit our home. I sat in awe of him! He was so loving, funny and absolutely incredibly handsome. He would listen to you, no matter what you had to say...listening not only with his ears but with his eyes! I would wish that I was older as I had such a crush on this gorgeous, movie star-like and much-beloved man. His spiritual wisdom helped me so many times in my life. My heart is breaking for our loss, but I know we will see Uncle Bernie again.

Cousin Bernie and I always had a burning mutual interest - airplanes and flying. We swapped lots of tales. He took me flying as a kid. RIP, Cuz!

A special cousin that I will reserve memories forever. Even though we did not see each other often, Bernie will hold a special place in my heart. Love you, dear one.
