Our condolences to Hui Cha; George; Karole; Julia; Charles and Aunt Mary along with all family and friends. I have fond memories of Uncle Bernie staying with us in Auburn one summer in the 70’s. He did many renovations at our house such as waterproofing our basement, putting up paneling in many of the rooms of the house along with other updates. I enjoyed his time with us. He was amusing and I know my Dad enjoyed his stay with us. I am glad we had that time with him and got to know him. I know my siblings agree.

Memory Eternal.

Mary Ellen Dittmar (Guszcza) and Bill.
