Dear Bernie,by Darlene Huntsman on 09/26/12
As I sit here and write this it is hard to believe it has been 26 years since you went missing. Some days it seems like just yesterday that we were talking on the phone the day you disappeared. Laughing and joking and making plans to get our daughters together. Other days it seems like a lifetime ago. Not a day goes by that I don't think about you, I think about how much you've missed in our family and how much good you could have done in the world with your sweet personality and warm sense of humor. I think about how your daughter Nicole's life would have been so different if she would have had the chance to grow up with her loving mother. I hope the people who are responsible for your disappearance realize this and go through each day knowing what pain they have caused to so many. What kind of persons takes a mother away from their child for their own selfish reasons. I take comfort in knowing that there is an all knowing God whom they will answer to. We will never give up Bernie, we will bring you home. As always, I love you little sister.
