    I apologize for typing errors in my previous note. Want to also say that Bernie was a wonderful husband to Gloria and lovingly cared for her in her needs. He was very proud of his children and grandchildren and will be missed by all family and friends. Again, our condolences, the Barth family.

    The Barth family is very sad to hear of Bernie’s passing. Our sympathy and regards to Gloria and all the children. My late hustand, Jerry, amyself, and the Semrau family go far back with Kodak, Pop Warner, many ballgames, bowling, etc. We offer our deep condolences and know what you are going through. I am not feeling well or I would be there in person. God Bless all of you and may Bernie rest in peace! Pat Barth & Family
