« on: March 17, 2015, 11:17:26 AM »
One of Bernard's stepdaughters, Abi, has written to say how much Bernard's family appreciate the very thoughtful messages left here about Bernard.

She wants you to know that Bernard's funeral is to take place at 3.30pm on Monday 23rd March 2015 in The Oak Chapel, Crownhill Crematorium and his glass friends will be very welcome.
All flowers welcome, any enquiries to J. S. Cowley & Son (Funeral Directors) 71 High Street, Stony Stratford, Milton Keynes, MK11 1BA. Tel: (01908) 565353

The Milton Keynes Citizen has a special website for leaving messages in memory of Bernard at:

We will miss you, Bernard.

Over a year after the fact - I am so sorry that this has happened. Bernard was a luminary in the field and he will be hugely missed.  :'(

Just the other day I read a comment here;
"Bernard would be turning in his grave to see you using metric measurments for Old English Glass."
He's still here, watching over us and keeping us "correct". :)
Cheers, Sue (M)
