    So Sorry to hear of Bernie’s passing. We think of him often here at Hillian house. I found some old photos and have attached from his time living here. Dated roughly 2002.

      Our uncle was a gentle man. His love of animals as a young man is a memory I hold dear.
      His smile, laugh and sense of humour will be remembered.
