Aunt Dot,
Uncle Bernie was a wonderful uncle and I have fond memories of going to your home in Hyde Park and going to the public pool with the cousins and Uncle Bernie grilling out serving me my favorite burnt hotdogs. Our heartfelt wishes to you and all the Darpel family. You are in our hearts and prayers.
