I've had a very hard time thinking of the best words to say. Bernie, you had so many amazing qualities that will be missed by every person you've ever spoken with. You were the kindest, most loving father& husband & friend. I'm not sure you ever met a stranger either! Thank you for being our friend. Take care of my boy, hug him tight & tell him we love him. Until we meet again old friend. Love Andy & Mel

I am so sorry for your loss. I never met Bernice, but I felt like I knew him through my dad's stories. (My dad is O.C. Hayes). He loved spending time with Bernice and spoke of him often. I pray that somehow, the family will find peace in knowing they will see him again someday. Peace be with you all. God bless you all.
