Bernie had a natural presence of brightening up everyone’s day with his wonderful smile and sense of humour. I have lovely memories of Bernie sitting with us in the office, sharing lots of stories about his family , work and life. There was always lots of banter and laughing. Marg my thoughts are with you, love to you and your family.

A giver to anyone no matter who they were. The biggest heart the biggest smile . And a man that never knew how to put his hand down when something needed to be done. Bernie was in like Flynn with very little or no recognition or appreciation at all. Did this bother him.. never. Goodness was his mission. Although nothing was more important to Bernie than his beautiful wife Margie his other half. Together they certainly made a whole. Plus his family. Always the worker. Now put your tools down Bernie and rest aleast for a couple of days. As everyone knows as soon as you get to heaven you will be looking down . Getting out your tools and fixing this broken planet. God was no fool when he called you for help. He certainly got the best. Thank you special man losing you broke so many hearts.
