    Dear Shari,

    Several years ago I had the great privilege of helping your mother and father out on a legal matter. To my great joy, the usual attorney client relationship quickly evolved into friendship, an enduring friendship. Over the years I always enjoyed seeing and speaking with your parents, and of course Jill and I relished seeing you and your father (you, too, Juno) at your beautiful home. Inevitably in my conversations with your parents, your name came up (this was well before I knew you) and it was always abundantly clear how much they cherished you. In all ways, you are a tribute to them and their love for you. Jill and I mourn with you in your father’s death; we know that he will be greatly missed by you and by the entire TBE community.

    In sadness, with love,

    Jim & Jill

    Dear Shari,

    I am so sorry for your loss and mine. Bernie was a gentle..man, always caring and considerate of others. I will cherish the memories of the wonderful times we shared (along with your mother)on our “antique” trips. Fun adventures. He was one of a kind. My sincere sympathy.

    Oh Shari, I am so sorry for the loss of you dad. He was truly a remarkable man, one that many will remember forever. To say he will be missed by many would be an understatement. He will be missed by ALL. Shari, my thoughts and prayers are with you during this time. May Bernie rest in the sweetest, most comforting peace.
