I remember Bernard very vividly. I ran around with his son, Doug, and I would visit with Bernard about his pride of organic farming. He was always a friendly man, and he seemingly knew no strangers. God be all of you in your loss, and I'm so glad a former classmate let me know of this. Godspeed to Bernard, your Dad, and Husband.
