Uncle Bernard and Aunt Mae were very special to me. I remember when I was very young I used to go to their house to stay for a few days every year while my Mom ad Grandma went on a Buffalo Shopping trip. It was always an adventure as you may imagine a young girl going from downtown Toronto to the suburb of Scarborough which at that time seemed to like a different world. I will miss our phone calls that we had almost every month until the last few. It was always so great keeping up on the news of your family and answering your thoughtful questions about mine. It’s the end of a generation for us on my moms side of the family. Thank you uncle .Bernard fir always being there and helping me keep those memories of those passed alive. I will miss you terribly. Love as always your niece, Bernice.

My sincerest condolences to John, Diane, thier boys and the entire Arbour family on the passing of Bernie or as I liked to call him Barnyard! I had many fun conversations with him at the rink over the years as he was a constant fixture at Bradley's & Keegans hockey games. I will always remember him for his smile and the humorous, good natured, dry whitted conversations we would have during that time. He was a man I had a tremendous amount of respect for and would always seek him out for a chat when I knew he was in the building. It's a regret that I did not keep up closer contact after hockey was done. I will always remember Bernie as a down to earth guy with a quick wit, great sense of humor and a little bit of devilish attitude behind his warm smile.
