We have known Bernie & Carol for about 20 years. We loved Bernie like a part of our family. Such a wonderful loving man, so very special to all our family. Loved to see him at Halloween, what kind costume Carol would put him in and herself. We will miss him here on earth, but Praise God for the hope of seeing him again on that great reunion day. Love and many prayers Randy & Sharon Barger

I sang with Bernie, Carol, and Jim for a long time. Bernie had the biggest heart of anyone I ever knew. Not a time would go by that he didn't tell me he was praying for my husband. I will miss his hugs but I know I will see him again.
