My deepest sympathy in hearing about Mr. Thomassen’s passing. He was such a kind gentleman an it was always a pleasure to talk with him at Aldersgate. My mother-in-law, Sarah, always looked forward to their conversations. They were both in the military so there were lots of stories to share. “Bernie” brought a smile to her face and he will truly be missed.
