I will always remember the trips Uncle Bernie and Aunt Florence made to visit us in the Poconos and our trips to Connecticut. He was a good friend as well as brother-in-law to my Dziadzi. Our thoughts and prayers are with all of you.

My thoughts and prayers are with your family. Pat - thank you so much for introducing me to your father. It was truly a pleasure to have gotten to know Bernie. I was lucky enough to enjoy his stories, humor, and a tour of the back roads of Rockville. Wishing you all peace and comfort during this difficult time. ---Richard Petrosino

Pat Shelton Posted at 12:49pm
