Bern was a wonderful man who lived a long, full life. Our children still remember sitting on Santa's lap at Bern's and Peggie's Christmas party, unaware that Mr. Neiweem had disappeared from the room right before Santa arrived. The Neiweems front door was always open to the neighborhood and the kids knew Mr. Neiweem kept a stash of candy for those that stopped by to say hello. Adults that hesitated when deciding between red or white, would find themselves holding a glass of each. Refills were mandatory and the conversation was delightful.
Thank you, Peggie, PJ, and all of the rest of the Neiweem family for sharing Bern with us. He was a remarkable person who will be missed by many. Love to all of you,
Susan, Doug, Benjamin, Abby, & Mason Raguse
