This blogs sole purpose has transitioned to one of keeping in touch with each other. Over the years it has been primarily for letting everyone know what is happening and also for promotion to add more folks to our Winter Texan family. The core of things has changed and we must change along with it. We still want to know what is happening with our friends no matter where they may be located. So continue to let us know where you are and what is on your plate.
I snipped this picture of Bernie from the website.
I had a message from Vera with a link to Bernie Houle's obituary. Unfortunately I wasn't able to copy and post that link here successfully but I did find another notice of his obituary which I have below. For those of us who have been coming to Magnolia for quite a while, we remember Bernie and I think they lived over on Lime but I could be wrong about that. I'm going to look through my pictures from years past and see if I can find a photo of him. This is the link to what Vera sent me and you should be able to click on it and there is a photo there of Bernie and a more complete obituary. https://www.integritydeathcare.com/bernie-houle?fbclid=IwAR1fgppGQVzfgbS3nAka6WPd7kZxCdULVP6hoFuis_ZSHt1Sy8o8gR6M-Fk
Here is the other one that I found just as it was printed.
