O how I remember Bernie, as a young kid, sliding down Tina MacPherson’s hill on Sunday afternoons with a piece of cardboard. But those days were simple and it did not take much to amuse us kids but we all loved having fun. Bernie, may you enjoy the other side, your work on earth is done. Fly with the angels of loved ones gone before you. Rest in Peace My Friend, you will be missed…
