Bernie Cook What a man. A man with big hands, who loved to work with them. He always had a sparkle in his eyes, a grin on his face, a positive attitude, and kind words for everyone. We all loved him the best. He never would turn down someone in need of help or a favor. He danced at our wedding, helped us move and with countless good deeds over all these years, even helped our elderly relatives. People will think... "Was he a saint?" in our eyes...He is. And better yet. He was our friend.
