    I am sorry I am not there today and give my respects to Bernie. I will say he deserves his rest after fighting so long with all the treatments and never ending stress . Marcia gave him great care going thru this process. Bernie loved his cars and I immediately had this connection with him when I first met him along his cool attitude and he was a real tough guy which is very evident with his struggle with cancer. Bernie loved food and deserts and boy could he eat…I will miss him and I know he is in a better place now. I would have liked to have given the family big hugs by being there. You have my deepest sympathy and love XXOO…
