It is a sad day, Uncle Bernie has passed away!

I received an alarming phone call last night: Uncle Bernie has passed away. I find myself just saying “wow” repeatedly to myself and others. I think right now I am just in a state of shock. I only saw him a few weeks ago, and everything was fine. Of course, I have been thinking about this for the past 22 hours now. Perhaps because I am a little bit older, or I’ve been doing a bit of soul-searching. However, it has caused me to examine my station in life and realize that tomorrow is a gift. It does not seem to matter your age, activities, whatever. When it is your time to go, it is your time to go.

Although we visited many watering holes, these particular pics were taken at the Conch Republic Seafood Company in Key West, Florida, on October 30th, 2007. Key West will not be the same w/o Uncle Bernie.
