Grandpa you were the most amazing man I’ve had the privilege of knowing. Blessed to be your grandchild is an understatement. Your laughter, jokes, teasing, cooking, stories were just some of what I loved about you. Thank you for always being there for me through every Avenue of my life. I will miss being able to call you for advice but i know what you would tell me. I’m a Bernhardt and one tough cookie! Don’t take any crap from anyone, stand my ground, always do what’s right and pray daily. I will continue to make you proud and May you Rest In Peace! Love, Schnickelfritz

I was very sorry to hear about Don's passing. I hadn't seen Don for years but I thought of him often. I always considered Don a friend and always wished our business relationship as partners would have turned out differently. Rest in peace Don.

You were such a wonderful father and devout Christian. I will miss you, especially your embellished stories and our talks about the Reds, Bengals, and Bearcats. I will miss your contagious smile and your encouragement when I was down. Thank you for being there for me, after the loss of my mother and father.
