I remember the first time I met Bill. His love for his family was so obvious. I spent who knows how many hours that day with Bill & Penny having a wonderful time. His humor was infectious. Although I don't know that Chris & Stephanie were so amused being the recipients of that humor that day. It was always great getting together with Bill & Penny. I don't have the words to express how sorry I am at his passing.

Will Bernath Posted at 04:37pm

We're so glad that you brought up our father's humor. He liked to show his humorous side when he felt comfortable with friends and family. Thank you for bringing up this memory of him and thank you for your condolences.

Jerry and I are saddened to hear of your loss. We loved catching up with Bill and Penny whether it was watching our kids Christen and Susan play soccer together, or seeing him at the local store. I will always remember his laugh and smile especially when he talked about his children, his eyes would just light up. Penny, Stephanie, Will and Susan we are thinking of you all with much love, support and prayers. Love Bethany and Jerry Harrington

Will Bernath Posted at 02:55pm

Thank you for your love, support, and prayers. You made a good observation about how much he loved to talk about his children. Steph, Susan, and I spoke with him every week no matter where our travels took us and he was eager to hear our stories. Thank you again for your sympathy, Bethany and Jerry.
