We are both saddened at Bernie?s passing. He was my late wife Marilyn?s beloved brother, who he has now joined, a wonderful kind, honest and genuine human being - a real mentsch! The world is a lesser place without him.

My condolences on the passing of Bernard Sher. He always wanted to be sure everyone was doing good and had everything one needed. I know last few years were hard for him and the family. Let him rest now.

Bernie and you too, Fern were so good and helpful to Linda ( may she rest in peace.) I'll never forget how you were there for her when Ted had heart surgery. May G-d bless us all with good health, luck and happiness.
