Bernie was a great guy and was one of the first Amway drivers I teamed with going to the west coast back in 1978. I learned alot about trucking from Bernie. Alot of great trips and one great memory from his last trip with Bill Miller in a truck stop in Omaha.

Phyl, I am so sorry to hear about Bernie, you and your family have my sympathy. I will be in New York to see Dana and won't be able to make the service but I will definitely be praying for all of you. He was always so friendly and you two seemed to have a lot of fun together, I'll be thinking of you.
