Condolence & Memory Journal

Debbie and Family,
Our Deepest sympathies to all of you. Bernie was a person I looked up to when I was a young girl. He was the brother of my Aunt Ida Marquez. He was always happy to see me and my family when he came to visit my Aunt. He was a lot of fun and always had a good time. We are truly so sorry to hear that he has passed.. God Bless all of You.

My heartfelt sympathy at this time. For me Bernie was one of the best people at Deere. He will be greatly missed by all who were lucky to have known him. Too soon.

I was sadden by the passing of Bernie. He will be missed by many. My prayers go out to all those who loved him.
Remember that he is now in a family reunion, with Jesus as the director.

Dear Deb,

Dennis and I are deeply saddened by the loss of your Bernie. We are so glad that we were able to know Bernie and we treasure the times that we were able to spend together. We so enjoyed his kindness, his quick smile and sense of humor and his wonderful sense of wit. He could strike up a conversation with anyone! And, he made all of us feel important. Heaven did, indeed, receive a special angel. I am so sorry that we will not be able to be at the visitation or the funeral. We are in charge of our little 2 year old all of this week.

I hope that we may connect very soon. Deb, your friendship has meant so very much! We are connected through family, friends and a deep understanding. I am grateful.

Dennis and I hold you and yours in our hearts continuously. We are here for you! I hope you know that.

Our deepest sympathies to all of you.
With Love,
Gayle and Dennis

I am so sorry to hear this. RIP Bernie. I am so happy I had the chance to take care of him while he was at Edencrest. He always brought a smile to my face with his jokes, or his smart comebacks. My thaughts and prayers are with Deb and family.
