I didn’t know you personally, but I have heard many stories from the whole Bernstein family about what an amazing man you were. Every time that Max mentioned his “peepaw”, he had a certain glow to his face that made me realize what a great man you were. You will be missed greatly ,but I know the stories and memories will never stop. Thank you for being an amazing grand father to my best friend Max

I saw your Pop at the Aquarium a couple of years ago. He gave my granddaughter a tour. He was as gracious with her as he was with me during our years together decades ago. He was a mentor to me at work, in faith and in life. We will miss him immensely. He was a great influence in our lives.

Peepaw,

You were the best grandfather in the world! You always knew how to put a smile on my face and you always knew how to make someone laugh so hard they cry. I will miss the straw making noise and everything else about you. I had the best 14 years of my life with you.I love you so much and I will never forget you!

Love,

Sydney
