Well, they buried our friend Bernie Zofcin today. The Blonde and I went to the funereal and agreed that it was the saddest fuckin' thing that either of us had been to for a very long time.
It was also the biggest laugh I ever heard at a memorial service. Seeing that Bernie was always the eternal bachelor, his brother Mick brought the house down with an opening remark that went; "Never in his wildest dreams could Bernie have imagined...that so many of his former girlfriends would all be gathered in the same place....Well, maybe in his wildest dreams". Great line.
Anyhow, I'll miss his laugh, his golf swing and his innate ability to make everyone around him feel welcome and part of whatever scene was happening at the moment.
Bon voyage, Bernie. We love you, man.
