DiGiulio Family,

My sincere condolances on the passing of Bernie. I remember Bernie when I was a volunteer Firefighter at Fruit Hill FD and continued our friendship when he was appointed as a full time firefighter and I was appointed to the police dept.

Bernie will be missed by many.
Berinie was always a great person to have a conversation with and never had a bad word to about anyone.
