I am sorry for your loss. Bernie and I worked together for years at the PLCB. He was a great friend and gentleman. I will keep him in my prayers.

My deepest sympathy to the Funtal family. I was so blessed to have Bernie in my life! He was a WONDERFUL, kind-hearted gentleman who became a big part of our family! I thank him for all he did for my mom, and for bringing her much happiness. They made such a cute couple!! I will miss Bernie and our fun Bingo games at Atria. May you rest in Jesus' arms in peace and comfort, Mr. Bernie. I love you...and I know, ditto!

Uncle Bernie was always ready with a smile and a funny observation. Bob was always impressed that he could eat so much at picnics and never gain an ounce! They called him Quarters when he played that 66 card game because of his high stakes betting. He was a sweet man.

I have known Bernie and Eileen and Mary and his family for over 40 years. He was the sweetest and happiest person you could meet. Always joking and laughing. Loved his 3 girls with all his might and grandkids, too. It was an honor to be your friend and neighbor, Bernie. Say 'hi' to Eileen and Mike for me!
