|Let the memory of Bernard be with us forever... We love you Uncle "B"!|
"Two weeks ago I was texting as usual and every time I typed the work “because”, it kept putting Bernard. This happened all day. I text every day and the word “because” is an easy word to type in. It kept coming up as Bernard and I was like dang, what is that about. So of course I said hi to him out loud, smiled, and went about my day. Then another day within that same week, I thought about the time we went to the Woodgrill in Norwalk for my birthday, and Bernard took his black bag in to carry food out. I laughed because when you sneak food out, you are supposed to do exactly that, “sneak”. Bernard had no shame in his game to put what he wanted in that bag and take it home for later. It is memories like this that make me miss Bernard sooo much."
"I know for sure they one EASTERN time now, it's only 9:44 and they talkin bout it's May 27th."
"Hey babe, it's me. Missing you more than I can express.
Year one, not real to me.
Year Two, still not real looking for you to come through the door and tell one of your great stories about whatever. You told the best stories ever.
Today is Year Three, what the Hell ,still trying to process it.
I know you know...but when i came today I had everything I needed
your picture, my blanket, 2 pillows, a book, picnic basket filled with
chips, soda, cookies, seeds scrumptious to the lumptious sandwich with salami from Hill Top and a few other goodies. I had a ball.
Well imma keep it short and sweet I LOVE YOU "NO MIDDLE NAME"
"Hi B West,
Just wanted you to know that you're missed. Dino cherishes your memory and misses you dearly. Your spirit fills your home and there's fond memories of you there. We all miss you. I'm sure you're happy, enjoying your life's reward. Continue to look in on us from heaven, until we all meet again. Rest well my brother."
"I've celebrated you today Uncle B! I always think about you, especially around this time! Yes, I wore the sweater and you had my thoughts. I miss you :)"
"Hey Pop. 3 years have gone by so fast. Even now your presence is still missed. I know your looking down at mom and seeing how well she's doing and I know your very proud. Continue to Rest Well and always know we will always love & miss you Old Man!!!!!!
"All is well on this side. Miss those Bomb hamburgers. Will never forget you B."
"What's good Uncle B. Still missing you every time I go to the house. Your lovely wife blessed me with a pair of your shades and a vest. I'll get fly like you one day and take a pic. Much love always!"
"Forever in our hearts husband."
"My Prayers go out to you Dino, may God continue to comfort you. Bernard is alright.......
love peace and happiness and joy always
Wowww, 3 years...still can't believe it, but I know God had a better plan.
I know you are watching over all those who loved you and Twin.
Happy Birthday and continue to rest in the presence of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ
Love You !!!"
"Hey there Mr. B. I know I'm a day early... I've been thinking about you all day today. I went to the store today and saw some blue and white "LA Dodgers" salt and pepper shakers shaped like baseballs. The moment brought back so many wonderful memories. I bought them as a tribute to you and will use them to honor the memory of my Bnard! #Stilllovinyou, Locke"
"Dear Brother B Happy 55th Bday!
It's your Lil Sis aka Brown Liquor Lady!
You have been missed abundantly. However, all the Love, Memories & Laughter that you left has kept us thus far. Your Genuine Spirit was REAL for all that crossed your path. If someone didn't want "The Truth" they shouldn't ask you!
I know the Party would have been the most @ "Club West!" I can see us as we often did, dancing to our favorite "Hustler"song by JayZ, me coaching you on with your none rhythmic moves ( lol) & your facial expressions stating otherwise"
"Hey they must be on eastern standard time it's really 11:47 PM MARCH 3 2016"
"Hey Babe still trying to process this. There are so many times that I've said "for real you not here". I miss every thing about you. There are so many things that have changed since you left it's unbelievable...would you believe the 252 is closed.
I want to say so much but the words just won't come right now so i'll talk to you about it later.
Hold on all soldiers is playing now it's really messing me up so I think i'm just gonna close with I LOVE YOU.
"Hey Bnard - Celebrating your double-nickles (55) birthday today! i miss you so much - still seems like a dream... I'm sure you welcomed Danisha with open arms and plenty of love. We're watching after Deo for you as you would want us to do. Continue your rest, Love you forever, Locke"
"I know you're sharing the love. RIP dear husband."
"It was just like yesterday that you were out there on that grill, talking smack; having me rolling and dropping knowledge at the same time. Miss you man. Don't worry, we're taking care of the only thing that you left behind down here (your heart). She's doing well; misses you tremendously, but she's well. Love you!"
"I told Dino that I was thinking about you a few days ago, I can only say "perfect timing." Missing you a lot! Miss hearing that "Hey twiiiin." I am wearing the Clippers sweater today... I laid it out all day yesterday, the Clippers were getting blown out and came back to win at the last minute (ironic? Haha). Love you Bernard, I know you are here! Happy 55th!"
"God is true to his word, he send his comforter to comfort us and also give us good memories of loved ones who have passed. He also said in Revelation that those who die before the rapture and believe in Christ they will be rapture first so I know Bernard believed.
May you continue to rest in the bosom of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ.
You will forever be missed."
"Hey Mr. B! I can't believe it has been two years already. You're so missed. I miss our hang outs. You always looked out for me and watched over my heart more than I did sometimes. Love you and miss you."
"We thank God for the time he shared you with us. Still in our hearts 'husband'."
"Hey babe, I can't believe it's 2 years already... Today me Kisha & Tee tee came to see you i brought a picnic basket chairs & TV trays so we could enjoy you. we talked and laughed and shared stories you were the best ever and I wish we could have had more time, I'm still trying to get used to you not being here to do everything for me its crazy. I'm missing you more than you will ever know your QUEEN...love hugs and kisses I'll be back to visit soon."
"My brother Bnard, I'm missing you so much! Can't believe it's been two years already. I was thinking about you speaking in tongues that Tuesday night where God granted you your greatest desire. Your special "seat" at Strait-Way will always be an honor and tribute to you. Dino is wearing her hair in natural curls and I know you love it. She's also wearing "skinny" pants and leggings and I know it's driving you crazy =). I love you much and we'll see each other again. ~Locke"
"Hey Baby its me happy birthday to you happy birthday to you words cannot explain or express what I'm feeling right now. Thank you for all the wonderful years that we shared together. even though you're not here you are still my rock. I'm trying to get through this without breaking down it's rough so I'll just stop. with all the love that I have within me and from the bottom of my heart l love you I love you I love you no middle name. goodnight baby and keep watching over me."
"Heyyyyyyy my birthday twin!! This day is bitter sweet for me, but I know you would want me "celebrate " for the both of Us. Continue to rest peacefully! Happy birthday!!! Love you!"
"Hey B no middle name West!
Well it has been my job and pleasure to keep your wife laughing ha ha!! It has also become my job to give you a new middle name every year and that helps me keep your memory alive! Roll by my moms cloud and tell her hey for me! Don't party to hard, Happy Birthday! "Z""
"Still special Husband. I'm having one for you."
"Still special Husband. I'm having one for you."
"You were special to me, I think about you and miss you a lot. I know you're smiling on us. I celebrated you all day. Happy Birthday Uncle Bernard.
"Hey Bnard - We are celebrating you today! It's still not real to me that you are resting with the Lord and not here with us. I miss you much and think about you and our many life experiences throughout the years. So many wonderful memories. Continue your rest and I'll see you again. Love you, Sis-n-law, Nita, aka Locke"
"Happy Birthday Commissioner!!!
Thank you for being my friend. I will always remember you.
Continue to Rest In Paradise.
It's your Birthday, It's your Birthday you going to Party like well.....
You should be resting now. However we would like to remember you as a wonderful husband to Dino and just a nice and caring brother n law
remembering you always,
Avery and Valerie"
"Happy b-day uncle B! You'll always be remembered. Funniest person I know"
"Hey No Middle Name, today 2013 is the day my life changed forever. The lord whispered in your ear and said come home. So many things have happened in my life since you have been gone. I miss you soooo much, I often wake out my sleep still not believing you're not here, it's crazy.
When I went to visit you yesterday guess what I did: I cleaned the truck so you could see for your self even though I never did it you taught me well LOL.
Yesterday I cooked and had the family & friends over to help me celebrate you, every body came just goes to show my family & friends really loved you and you know I lubbed you most of all.
Forever Yours Princess"
""The Husband" The Best ever. How can we forget. Always in our hearts."
Wow, I can't believe it has been one year since you transitioned to your new home. I think about you often, especially when I see the weeds that have grown in the church parking lot. You never would have allowed that to happen =). I wear the pink heart necklace you gave me on the 26th of each month as my tribute to your life. Family, girlfriends, and friends are all pitching in to assist and take care of Dino; she misses you so so much. We had a wonderful Family weekend beginning with an Appreciation for "Daddy" and ending with a Dinner in your honor. We miss you Bnard! I love you forever! Locke"
"Hey Uncle B,
Words can't express how I feel about you! Happy Birthday & I enjoyed our visit! Luv you & miss you forever!"
"What's up Uncle B? Happy B Day! There are so many stories that I could tell right now, but I will keep most of them to myself. The one that I would like to share is the one when you caught Maal and I at 1225 with those girls and you went crazy on us LOL! We were like "Uh oh... What the heck just happened?" Like classic uncle B you were angry but funny at the same time. Probably angry because we ditched school and funny because you just couldn't help it. We never really talked about that after it happened, but I know you remember. Thanks for all of the great memories.
"My brotha, There'a an emptyness that will never be filled because of your absence from us on this side. But I know you're up there telling all the family business, and I would not have it any other way. You always were true to who you were and what you believed and I'll always honor that. I got your wife's back forever. CQ2"
It's still surreal to me that I'm even writing this to you, but wanted to wish you a very peaceful Happy Bornday. Even though you not with us anymore, we will continue to celebrate this Special Day as if you didn't miss a beat. 104th is so different without you being you being there. I had the opportunity to stay with Mom for a while after you made your transition. As I would do certain things around the house, I found myself asking the question "Would Daddy be ok with this?" I would even go look at your "BIG" portrait in the living room and just talk to you sometimes lol.
Mom is a tough cookie. She's doing the best she can without you. Just know that there's plenty of eyes on her and she is well taking care of. Daddy B thank you for always being that extra Dad I needed. I will forever carry you in my heart.
Love You Forever,
"Bnard was a really great man . He used to take me to school when I was in elementary . He has helped my family a lot . Thank you Bnard for taking me to school when I was younger .. You didn't have to but you did . You were close to my grandfather Jesse Byrd and I know he misses you greatly . RIP ! I know your in a better place ❤❤❤"
"My condolences to the Bernard West family. “West”, a good friend from way back in the day, you will be truly missed. Under your super cool, laid back, OG persona, was a kind, generous soul, with a sly smile and hehe laugh who would always lend a helping hand when requested. All the memories of sharing numerous great moments in life with you, will keep you with us forever. RIP...Billy"
"My thoughts and prayers go out to the Queen family.
Bernard was a kind man and always thoughtful.
He always had a kind word and a smile.
Yeshua will give you peace.
"Morningside Monarch 4 life!!!!!! Westside!!! Ain't No Stopping You Now!!! :)"
"B. West I will miss your smile and sweet personality. You were a mild manner never got upset type of guy in my eyes!!! I will always remember all the great laughs, parties, dances and kick backs we all shared. I loved you as my classmate, friend, and my brother!! Rest with my Jesus sleep with the angels and peace is with you!!!!!"
"Bnard, you were so special to so many people. Our relationship flourished in the last seven years and I really enjoyed your kindness, consideration and big heart! You have always been generous and giving. I was so excited when I saw your biggest desire fulfilled - speaking in tongues. God made sure you were ready to come into his presence. I love you forever! Locke"
