Barbara and Bernie traveled to many places around the world after Bernie retired, and she lovingly cared for him later in life.

My husband, Ted and I have wonderful memories of Barbara & Bernie. We all lived in Holy Ghost Parish where we were in a CFM
(Christian Family Movement) group. We had two little girls and the Fallons had three, the oldest at Holy Ghost School. When she came home and reported there were Bats in the girl's bathroom, It motivated B&B to move.It also motivated us to build a home where our girls could walk to school which we did a block from St. Thomas More School which had just opened a year earlier. The moves did not interfere with the friendships as the CFM group continued as a dinner club. When we all tired of cooking, the wives became a lunch group...eating out.
I remember Bernie's Funeral at St. Cecelia's Church. Now we know your beloved parents who were so devoted to each other are reunited. God bless your loving parents. Pat & Ted Bruno
