Dearest Barbara & Boys,
I am so very sorry for your loss. I always loved when I'd visit Aunt Janice and Uncle Al and you guys were there at the same time! Or, remember the trip to Ocean City?? I'd think "Who could be having more fun than us today?" Bernie's smile and warmth will always be remembered and your family will be in my thoughts and prayers.
Love, Karen

Dear Aunt Barbara, Keith, Craig & Chris,
My deepest condolences to you , Uncle Bernie was such a great person. I have so many memories of him always joking around, taking off his fingers, pulling coins from behind our ears which never got old, and always smiling. He is my mom’s first cousin and there are many stories of him getting into trouble and of being mischievous. He will be missed but I know he is in great hands.
All my love
Claudia.

I can remember way back when as a 17 year old when my sister Barbara came home with her boyfriend. We were from Brooklyn on Harmon Street. Regular Brooklyn guys! I take a quick look at this guy and and say to myself “Who does this guy think he is Mr. Wall Street dressed in his suit”. Well I then took a look at the cool firebird he was driving and said “Hey, he’s okay! Years later he became my brother-in-law and by then I knew he was one of us “A Regular Brooklyn guy”. Bernie became a big part of our family with his big smile and OF COURSE his storytelling. He was a regular prankster with all the kids and they all loved him. Bernie held a lot of pride in his love and knowledge of cars. Even recently he would ask my 19 year old grandson”
“ How’s the mustang Mike”. He was a wonderful husband and father and about 4 years ago was blessed with a little angel. His granddaughter Ada! This was one of the happiest days of his life! The apple of his eye. I guess the biggest think that I Loved about Bernie was how very much he loved my sister Barbara and how Happy he made her to the last day. JoAnn and I will miss you Bernie and May you Rest In Peace in the arms of our Lord forever.
