Good Friend

Bernie and Carolyn are such an important part of our memories. We were kids raising kids! And enjoyed being together. Carolyn, my heart goes out to you and the kids. We’ll pray for your family.


He’ll always be Number 1

Bernie trained me on the SPBS machines when he started getting ill, I eventually took over upon his retirement. He always told me he was #1 and I was #2, I don’t know about being #2 to Bernie, he was absolutely amazing. I used to call him Popeye, because he tightened the bolts on the machine so tight, NO ONE could loosen them. I will always have fond memories of him, he was just the best, he had a great laugh and since of humor. He will truly be missed by us all. When somebody retires, you always pray they’ll get 30 years out of retirement, he left way to soon. Loved that dude. RIP #1.


Sympathy

We were so sorry to hear of Bernie’s passing. He was a wonderful father, grandfather and husband who will be sorely missed. Our thoughts and prayers are with your entire family at this most difficult time. Love you. Mike and Kathy Hogue
