DeLana, We were heartbroken to hear about Bernie. You know we've really missed seeing the two of you. We still look in the drive every time we go by the house on 199 trying to see you. Memories are good, and we have some good memories of Bernie, his laugh, his sense of humor, etc. Our love & prayers are with you, Mike & Karen.

I know there will never be a neighbor as good as Bernie & Delana. My life is blessed with so many great memories. The one I miss most is yelling at the other to " GET OFF YOUR DAMN MOWER!!! IM NOT NOWING TODAY!! " I cried when we moved here because I missed THEM so much. Not my family home. I thank GOD everyday for bringing them into our lives.

Well we go back to school days then he enlisted in the Air Force and he came to me and asked if I would be interested in going with him. At the time I said yes. We were separated in basic since he was ask or our squadron was asked if anyone was interested in joining the band and he did. Have very brief contact since but thought of him several times. Our prayers go to the family. Terry and Nadine Herald
