    Judy so sorry to hear about Bobs death. I have many good memories working with him at KPR. You and your family are in my thoughts and prayers.

  3. Jeff Thune says:

    Dave- sorry about the loss of your Dad. He was a great guy and I was fortunate to have frequent interaction with him when I worked at Supervalu in Fargo. Your Dad often told me the story of my brother Dennis and you putting so much rebar in his driveway when you guys put in the new driveway in Fargo. It’s a good thing I didn’t know he was a boxer; as he would’ve won every thing we ever negotiated. Remember the good times.

  4. Paul Gigot says:

    Condolences to Dave and all the Berceaus. I have fond memories of Uncle Bob, not least that summer vacation in Fargo and Detroit Lakes. Like all of Romy and Liz’s children, a class act.
