Dear Liz,

I can remember looking forward to seeing your father every afternoon as he would visit with your mother. He would say,”Hello Saren Killing.” And then deliver his latest joke. He brightened many of my afternoons. What a guy!

I think of you and your family often. Please know that you are in my prayers during this difficult time.

Fondly,

Karen

I worked with a Bernt Johnson at

Hazel Atlas/Continental Can in the

1950’s. Did he work for them?

You have my deepest sympathy.

May God see you through your loss.

Liz,

I enjoyed taking care of your father for the past 2 1/2 years. He always made me and the girls @ CCC smile, especially when he sang his song, “You must of been a beautiful baby”. And eventhough he is in a better place with Dorothy, he will be missed. I cant stand walking past his room and not going in to see him. To me that will alway be Dorothy and Bernts room.

Liz, I had the pleasure of taking care of your Dad. He always made smile when he would sing to me “You must of been a beautiful baby”. I got to see him on FRiday and he just smiled at me and i sang to him. I know he is up in heaven and looking down on all the young ladys singing. A hospice Aid Vicki Cole
