I have so many good memories from my childhood coming to your house, and how much fun it was with all the kids, all the food, and always the love and happiness that filled Aunt Blanche and Uncle Bernie’s kitchen. Wherever Uncle Bernie was, Grandpa Paul was right beside him. They are together in heaven, lifting their glasses, laughing, and honoring their beloved families. I have to smile when I think of it! I will never forget my Carney roots, and how proud I am to be a part of the Carney family. My love goes out to all the family, and many hugs from across the miles.

My wife Bonnie and I so enjoyed our conversations with Bernie at the Kain Club during the 90’s. In fact, after graduating from Bethany College, Bernie assisted in me becoming a member of the Ohio Valley Traffic Club and I am still in the transportation business. My prayers and Rosaries are with you Blanche and your family.
