Dear family of Bernie:

We extend our heartfelt sympathy to you all at this time! I had the pleasure of meeting Bernie as he sat with my dad, John Rineer at QPRC and ate with him. What an amazing man and he and dad loved to talk and laugh a lot and share stories. I know dad was so sad when Bernie left to go back to his apartment but now they are together again forever! Blessings to you all- prayers of peace in your loss.
