Ken, Jacqui and Samantha Tapping

Bill and Family,
We are very sorry to hear that Bernie has passed. She was a wonderful woman, and our memory of her is of someone who smiled always, watch Bill so fondly when he was talking and threw her head back and laughed out loud when Bill told a story or a joke…. which was often.
She enjoyed life, and made the most of it.
Ken the Astronomer says she was like a comet…. she left a blazing trail everywhere she went, a trail of happy memories.
With love from the three of us,
Ken, Jacqui and Samantha

Please accept my condolences to Bill and his family on the loss of his lovely wife Bernadette. My husband Al,who sadly passed away in 2020, was a long time friend of Bill and through Bill we met Bernadette. She was indeed a very special person and will be greatly missed by all who knew her.
