Sincere condolences to Mark and the entire Perkins family. My thoughts are with you in this time of grief, but grief will pass leaving the happy memories you shared during your time together. Your Dad was my friend for 70 years and though we were separated by many miles for most of those years we were just as happy together whenever I visited Barbados. What a fine Person!

I am saddened by the sudden death of my dear friend Bernard. I have known him almost all of my life and will miss him. May his soul rest in eternal peace.

To Mark, Noel, and all extant family: My brother John, and I extend our heartfelt condolences to you. In less than a year, you have lost both your Mom and Dad, and we understand how deep your grieving must be. I use an excerpt from G. B. Shaw's "The true Joy in Life" to attempt to highlight R. Bernard's long life: Shaw writes...."life to me is no brief candle, but a splendid torch, of which I've got hold for a brief time; and I want to make that torch burn as brightly as possible before passing it on to future generations." I recall working with Bernard at Cable and Wireless, St. Lawrence. Bernard was not only a genial gentleman, but a fastidious, meticulous, person who always brought efficiency, and preciseness to his work. I will always remember his extreme generosity to my brother John, and me, whenever we returned to Barbados to visit. Bernard had an encyclopaedic knowledge of the social and cultural scene in Barbados, loved and played classical piano, danced, and had a full appreciation for the flowers of Barbados. He lived a long and full life, and one can be assured that his torch of generosity and kindness burns brightly, that as he rests peacefully, he has passed his torch of a well, and fully-lived life to future generations of his family and friends. Blessings, and continue to rest in Peace, my friend Bernard.

Sincerest condolences to Mark & Noel on the passing of your dad. He was a kind decent gentleman. I knew your family from the days of Gooding's Private School where my children Karen & Stephen attended. May he rest in God's eternal peace.

The Perkins Family: Cousins Clarence & Miriam, Frederick, and Margaret send our collective condolences and thank Cousin Bernard and his family for the fond memories and hospitality during our visits to Barbados. Cousin Bernard was the “Keeper of the Flame” for the Perkins’s family tree and history. Thanks for the education.
