Daddy, I miss you so much. My world is not the same without you.  I think of you every minute of the day.  

Thank you for being my father.  I feel so blessed that God loved me so much that he gave me you.  I promise you will live on through my kids and grandkids.  

I love you Daddy with all my heart.  I promise I will see you again. 

Your loving daughter,

To every thing there is a season, a time to every purpose under heaven: a time to be born, to die, to plant, to uproot, to weep, to laugh, to mourn, to dance. May you be surrounded by love and light.

Bernie was (and is) a good friend and neighbor for more than 45 years. We grew old together and our children grew up together.  We have especially missed Him and Lelia when the moved form Midland and the Covid lockdowns prevented us from visiting.  We know that we will see Bernie again in all his unencumbered glory,  Bernie is not left us, but gone to be with our Father in Heaven. Our prayers and continued love to Lelia, Bernie, Jr., Kathy, Karen, Linda and their families.
