Condolence & Memory Journal

He was a great friend of my husband Roland Rees, the Theatre Director.
Bernard often made delicious Italian lunches for us whenever we went to Randolph Ave for them to meet up & talk. He had very special intelligence and empathy for the downtrodden, which imbued all of his poetry and writings, and for which his play THE ELEPHANT MAN became famous.

Moby, Eve, William, Gabriel, Michael, Family, Friends,

Our condolences to the family on the loss of your dear loved one. He sure knew how to write a play that touched our hearts and made us take a hard look at ourselves. It changes some of our lives and made us look at people in a different way. We all have some kind of problem, we are no better than anyone else regardless of how the look!!!!! Thanks For Caring
