Dearest Dorothy and family It was with the greatest sadness that Edna and I learned of Bernie’s passing today. He was indeed a special and unique man who called out the ‘wrongs’ of society as he saw them and caught feverishly for what he believed in. We met over 26 years ago and I always felt a great fondness for him- even when our opinions differed. He was a most honorable man who life was blessed by his incredible life partner, Dorothy who he adored along with his wonderful children and grandchildren. May his memory be a blessing- Yehee zichroh Baruch.

Dear Mrs. Tonchin & Family: You probably would not know who I am as many years have passed but I knew Dr. Tonchin through my cousin the Late Victor Freed on St. Urbain Street when we were young and all the fun began. Time certainly passes rather quickly unfortunately but memories stay within us. Please accept my deepest condolences. May you have no more sorrow. Sheila Stein Nadrich, Ottawa, Ontario
