Recently I attended the memorial service for Bernie Summerscales and enjoyed seeing many of my hostel friends, some I had not seen for a very long time. In particular Ray Blanchard. We, of course, will miss Bernie he was such a talented, amazing person, but I guess it is that time of life when we say goodbye to long time friends. There were a lot more people at the service, but I didn’t take my camera. Check page 29 of my Ruthie’s Trails book for a photo of Bernie, myself and Ron Hopf on top of Mount Castleguard.
Here are Yvonne & Geoff, Ray and myself, and Jean, Kate, David, Alison, Mary & Don. Click on the photos to enlarge.
