To the Meyers family, please accept my sincere condolences. Bernie was a great friend. Whenever I would drive to Hartford from Baltimore to teach a class for R.E. Michel I never dreaded the long drive because I knew my friend Bernie was at the other end of my travels. I was so glad I got to spend some time and share some laughs with him in the hospital when I was there in May. Such a great man. He will truly be missed.
