Dear Amanda and family,
I worked with Bernard at the Ed Love Plant. We talked alot and Bernard would always have a funny story to share about something or somebody. He talked about his family as well and I could tell how much he loved each of you. He was a great guy and a joy to work with. Im sorry for your loss. He will be deeply missed.

Dear Amanda, Mary Grace and Jed,
There will never be another Bernard. We are heartbroken yet joyous we know he is with the Lord. As I read the many words of condolences, words repeated over and over again describing Bernard are, good, kind, gentle, interesting. He had a servants heart and is gone too soon. Our prayers are for God to grant you the strength you will need in the hard days ahead. We love you.

Amanda, Mary Grace, and Jed- Bernard was a very special human being. Great intelligence, wonderful sense of humor, and an amazing cook! Even with all of those talents the thing I think he was most proud of was his family. Though we grieve the loss, may you find comfort in your treasured memories. He will be greatly missed.
Much love,
Linda Hess
