The Rommes family
Our deepest sympathy and caring thoughts to the Mertz family.
We pray your cherished memories will provide comfort for you at this sad time of personal loss.
Bernie was always happy and joking around, but was a sincere and wonderful person. He was always ready to help someone when they needed it and he will be sorely missed.
May the Lord be with his family and comfort them during this difficult time.
Our sincerest condolences. Bernie was to us just an all around “good and honest guy”, a pleasure to know, who certainly helped us as ignorant home owners !
A very genuine man, always there when you needed a hand. Many good times were had on the golf coarse with you and many times I looked at you as a father. You will truly be missed my friend.
To my “other dad”, you will be missed by me and many others! No one has ever had a bad thing to say about Bernie (that we know of:)! His goofiness and odd jokes will be missed. R.I.P. Much love! XOXO!!
Good brother and good friend. We know he will be missed by a lot of people.
Our heartfelt prayers go out to all of you! We have MANY treasured memories of Bernie and will continue to remember him during those wonderful times! We can still see his smiling face, always laughing.
Please let us know if there is ANYTHING we can do to lift this burden right now.
We love you all!
Ken and Lynn
