I would like his son, Jeffrey, to contact me. I was very close with Blair and would occasionally call Bernie to update me about Blair until his passing. Although Jeffrey was a few years older, I do remember him.

I shall miss sharing laughter, Florida vacations, Breakfast, Lunches & Dinners and appreciate & love the wonderful memories Leo and I had with both Bernie and Ann through many years. It was an honor and our good fortune in considering Bernie and Ann our dearest and most cherished best friends.
My condolences to their family.

I am truly sorry to learn of the loss of your father at any time, but particularly so soon after losing your mother. My mother, Ina Allen Idelman, was a neighborhood friend of your mother when they were children. Please accept my deepest sympathy.

I cannot believe that Bernie has, also, passed away.

I was going to call on him, tomorrow, to bring him the Oyster Crackers that he loved me to bring so that he could eat them with his soup. And now this.

Rest in peace, Bernie.

Romans 12:12 & 15:4, will help you to see that sometimes it is impossible to defeat sadness. But, you can find comfort, and hope by regularly relying and depending on God. He can and will provide relief now and permanent relief soon. Isaiah 65:17
