I’m very sad to learn that my buddy, Bernie passed away. Friends at Kings Bay remember Bernie well. He was a unique person who emerged from his RV next to me one day drawn to my dog, Nathan. I watch him blossom from someone who appeared to be reclusive to the host of many happy hours in the large screen house he bought for that purpose. Lively conversations were his specialty. Extremely intelligent he was always armed with facts and strong opinions. He loved to needle me and I found delight in dishing it right back. That first year people tried to pair us together and I always mentioned he has a wife. Finally when Robyn appeared I met this wonderful lady with the most delightful sense of humor who drove our loved dogs around I a basket on her big trike. So many special memories.........I’m sorry my buddy is gone. I’m so very sorry Robyn.

Steve and I are so fortunate to have spent time with Bernard and Robyn at our family reunions. I have to echo Betty’s sentiment that we too enjoyed lively conversations with Bernard. Both of you brightened every event as did Norma and Aunt Pearla. We miss them all. The sense of humor, opinions, and no subject off limits conversations is what made Bernard a favorite cousin. Robyn and family, may happy memories ease your sorrow until it gently fades away. Love Maggie and Steve
