I met Bernie at a Seaway Festival party, introduced by his brother Paul several years ago. In just a brief conversation it was evident the kind of man he was and why he was so vital in his profession and so loved by all his family.

It was an honor to meet and to still to this day remember him, and I pray to God that he rest in peace.
