Dear Maria & family,
Please accept my heartfelt sympathy on the passing of Bernie...remembered as a true gentlemen with a great disposition on life. I'll always remember the times with his affiliation at Harris-Boyer servicing our stores, Bagelmania & Frank's N' Stuff, and more personally, with both of you at LaRose, enjoying his sense of humor and honored to being asked to sponsor his bowling team. He will be missed by all.
Take care, Joe
