I'll always remember Bernie for his congenial smile and love for all people. I got to know Bernie shortly after the tornado, when he lived across the hall from my mom. I purchased many beautiful necklaces from him, and joked that I'd need to build a "jewelry room" to store all of them. Bernie had a beautiful spirit. It won't be the same visiting at the home, and not seeing him there. My thoughts and prayers are with his family and his many caregivers
