Funny, charming and oh, so very talented, I will always remember Bernie fondly.

Just remember that it's only a temporary parting, Liz. Soulmates such as you and Bernie always find their way back to each other.

i Was an avid reader of House of Mystery, Creepy, Vampirella, Eerie, Swamp Thing, etc, and then eventually Stephen King's Creepshow. He depicted landscapes that were gothic, macabre, and haunting like the best of them. And for that, i thank him greatly.
