Bernard lived across the street from me and was my friend. As kids, we played on the same neighborhood football, basketball, track, and baseball team. He was a fun and cheerful friend.
Bernard, you blessed my life and I’ll remember you always. 🙏
He was an AMAZING PROVIDER for his wife, his kids, grandkids, AND grand baby. They kept him going going going and he loved them with EVERY fiber of his being and they love him too.
