Please keep his four children in your prayers, I may not have the spelling or ages correct, but the Lord will know who you are praying about: Geoffrey-19, Vanessa-17, Amira-14, Hellena -12. Bernard was a man of deep faith and solid convictions. His love for the Lord was apparent in all aspects of his life.
Bernard had a brightness about him and a spirit of generosity. He was a fun person to work with and always made me laugh. When I was stressed out, he lightened my mood. When my mom was sick, he was always there to listen. He came to my mom's funeral, and made me laugh when I really needed to laugh. My kids loved him. They always went to his office to chat and play with his toys. When I told my children that Bernard had died, Hezekiah who is 6, said " but Bernard promised me we were going to have a light saber fight next time we visited." What a lovely way to be remembered, Bernard would like that. Hezekiah wants to play Bernard. I hope there are light sabers in heaven.
