I remember my Uncle Bernie with such fond thoughts. Our 2 families did alot together, camping, trips, parties, etc. Uncle Bernie & my Dad Norm were the two craziest guys i have ever known. They always made you laugh. I have sooo many pictures of them dressed up or just being silly. Thank you Uncle Bern for leaving me such wonderful memories of times gone by! May you make everyone up in heaven have a laugh once in a while, just like you did down here with us! My thoughts are with Jude, Rick and families
