    I have had the pleasure of having Bernard & Jan as my neighbors. They have been kind to my parents & me over the years. Bernard was a character with many stores to share. Our last good visit was the 3 of us sitting on their front porch when there was a power outage. He would drive his riding lawn mower over & cut the grass for me. In the winter he’d clear the snow out front on his 4 wheeler so I could get to work. Then off he’d go would a little hallor of a WHOOP! Jan my heart goes out to you.
