We just learned of Bernard’s passing. So sorry to hear. Always thought so much of him. I, Anita, have made a commitment to meet after school with some students in Monticello at the same time of the funeral. It is short notice to parents for me to change meeting with the students. Otherwise, we would come. Sympathy, love, and prayers to the family.
Charles and Anita Peters
(Bernard and Anita’s mother, Maudena Orr, were first cousins. We buried mom’s brother, Curtis Smith, on Tuesday this week.)
