Bernie was about the nicest man i have ever had the pleasure to know and hold as a very dear friend. His goodwill and kindness to others was always his most treasured assets.

My wife Jennifer and I were sorry to see Bernie had passed. He was a beautiful man who came and played spoons at our Irish Session at St. Stephen's. He also sang "poor old dicey Riley". He was gentle soul with great spirit! Happy to have known him and will play an air in his honor next tuesday.

I wish to convey my sincere sympathy to the family of Bernie on his death. I am very sorry to hear of his passing as I had a lovely Christmas card from him and I cant believe he is no longer with us. I used to look forward to hearing from him. He will be a big loss to all of you. It was great to see him when he visited Ireland with Kelley, and I know his family were most important to him. Thank you for letting the family know and if you are visiting Ireland at any time, we would love to meet you and you would be very welcome to stay. My sisters Euchra and Una are deeply saddened for your loss and send their condolences. Please keep in touch. I am hopeful we can view the funeral Mass on Monday (if we can find the link). Best wishes to you all and our sincere condolences.
