Send Condolence

My sympathies to the entire family. Like so many others I had the distinct privilege to have been mentored by Bernie. I can remember like it was yesterday his unbelievable passion for the Art of Selling. His commitment to family. I have for the past 35 years as a businessman can truly say he was the greatest influence on my career. May he rest in peace. Harvey Kart
