I was always one of the younger bucks at CCFC. Everyone was older than me and further ahead in life than I was. Made me start thinking about if I would be able to step up like Bernie to serve and be the older bro to the younger bucks when I become one of the old guys. In that sense, I’ve modeled myself after him because I know what good it does to a young man to have an older guy take you under his wing. I’ll be forever grateful to Bernie for that. We had some great times! I’ll always miss Bernie’s utter disapproval when I would do something fancy on the basketball court. I knew he secretly approved deep down inside!
