In Loving Memory of Bernie Perleberg

July 22, 1947 ~ March 9, 2010

It’s been four years or 1,460 days since you passed, my dear Bernie. Life often seems like a dusty path that we walk day in and day out - yet walks with you were full of joy, sunshine, rainbows and perhaps a little rain or snow.

We had oh so much to say to each other. A lifetime to share. Each day was another chapter in the “Magical Lifetime” we thought would never end - but it did. Lifetimes are one of those wonderful gifts from God that only He knows when it will end.

At first, I didn’t think I could live a day without you - but I hang on to a lifetime of wonderful and beautiful memories - oh so many to get me through.

I long to be with you, my dear Bernie, and pray daily that He will allow this prayer to be answered. Until then, I’ll just wait - “when my morning comes around”.

We always knew that when we needed someone to turn to - we had each other. We prayed that each new day would be brighter than “yesterday”. Life had so much for us to share. I always found my home in your arms, my dear. There was never a shortage of love in our life. It brings joy to my heart daily as I talk to you as I walk around our house and yard, as well as the cemetery. I continue to marvel at all the “love and respect” we showed each other - I miss that so much. Each day with you was “so special”.

We shared love together Bernie and we did find all the best things life had to offer. Our bond is never ending.

Soon, I’ll be sailing down my golden river.


Since you went first and I remain,

one thing I’d have you do.

Walk slowly down that long, long path,

for soon I’ll follow you.

I want to know each step you take,

so I may walk the same.

For someday down that lonely road,

you’ll hear me call your name.


I continue to Love and Miss You So Much,
