Bernie attended the Waynesboro Senior Center regularly for many years and he did indeed spend much of his time here shooting pool. He was always friendly with all the members and staff and would often bring Tucker up the hall to visit those of us in the offices who are dog lovers. Bernie will be missed. Our thoughts and prayers are with his family.
