To the family of Bernie, my sincere condolences of Bernie's passing.
I was his room mate for a couple days last October at the Inverness Consolidated Hospital. We had some very nice visits, and he was one of the nicest men one could meet. I got the impression he was always trying to do for others and showed much love and adoration for his family when they visited. I hope he died peacefully. I certainly will remember him.
