I will never forget how Bernie helped me Get my company up and running with FF twenty years ago. Wonderful memories of his visits to Yankee Candle in So. Deerfield, MA where I worked at the time. I just wanted to look him up, and that’s how I learned of his passing. He was a great man who had forgotten more about forecasting and inventory control than most of us will ever know.
