Ken & I are very sorry to hear of Bernie’s passing. We will not be able to visit as Ken just got home from thirty days in hospital and rehab, but know our thoughts and prayers are with you. We will always have wonderful memories of times shared with your dad, mom & family. GOD BLESS! Ken & Barb Spivey & Family
