We are so sorry for the loss of your father.
My heart was sadden when I received this call on Monday morning. God placed me and Bernie in each other life for a reason and I feel that it was to keep me focused on taking time to laugh and smile more. Bernie was a wonderful man of God and was so compassionate. I was honored to take care of him. He made each of our visits fun. He always made me smile no matter what kind of day I was having. We always ended our day saying see you later and I love you. I can honestly say that I know that he loved his family and everyone that touched his life. I know that he is in heaven with his wings. Thank you Kenny, Jill and Tracy for allowing me the privilege and honor of taking care of Bernie.
In law enforcement, Bernie was a quiet professional; never loud or gruff. He would quietly take young officers under his wing and guide them as an older brother, always leaving them feeling good about themselves. Bernie was a positive role model for others and served Greensboro well.
Ken & Trace - Believe me I know just how you feel. Dad has been gone for almost 3 years and I miss him every day and you will miss Uncle Bernice for a long time to come. I loved him so much - so many memories of all of us camping when we were younger are times that I will never forget. I believe in my heart and soul that he and Dad are together now. Love you both.
