I write this with a very heavy heart. When I started my life on Brandenburg Place, who know that my next door neighbor would turn into my very dear friend. You quickly became family, sharing holidays, birthday, laughter and tears. Our families had a special bond for which I am grateful for.
I can write a book of all the wonderful, crazy, funny memories we created along the way. Instead, I will hold them in my heart and cherish every one of them.
Lou, Nick, Wendy - may God give you strength and provide the comfort you all deserve. Bern is leaving a such a void in this world as well as in the hearts of so many.
...until we meet again, my friend...are you coming out? Love, Kim Citro
