Well, high school graduation ceremonies are next week...where did the year go? It's always an exciting time as I get to congratulate one deserving student as they are awarded The Bernie McKinley Memorial Bursary.
I started the Bursary the year after we lost Bernie to memorialize his determination in business and in life.
Bernie suffered through many treatments for various cancers...did he complain?...not his style!
I met Bernie as a friend, then he and his wife Martha became my treasured clients and then Bernie decided to become a REALTOR(R). I hated losing them as clients, but they remained my "forever friends"!
This year I am thrilled to present the award to another determined young graduate who exemplifies the doggedness that was Bernie!
