Bernie, Stephanie, Rory and family, I am so sorry for your loss and there’s no words I can speak to ease your pain during this difficult time but I can leave you with this quote in hopes that it brings some comfort.

“Those we love don’t go away,
they walk beside us everyday.
Unseen, unheard but always near,
Still loved, still missed, and held so dear,”
