We had many great times with you Bernie, but for me personally was at Skol Bar when you danced my butt off! Man you could dance! I have always been so shy about it but you just spun me all around and led me around and made me feel great. Thank you so much for that and such great friendship! You were a mold of your own Bernie...and you will be very miss! We will see you on the other side our friend...Deb Davidson and Dan Hendrickson
