COONEY - Bernard Michael (Bernie)
01/06/1952 - 11/12/2020
Late of St Kilda and formerly of Warragul.
Dearest eldest son of Bernard and Elish Cooney (both dec).
Loved older brother of Tom (dec), Liz (dec) and Eileen.
My childhood “partner in crime” who grew to be the most gentle adult I know.
No matter what difficulty you faced, your kindness won you the love and respect of everyone who had the good fortune to be around you.
I count myself so lucky to have walked beside you on your journey.
As you’d always say to me when we parted “See Ya”.
I shed a tear for your tomorrow
That now you’ll never know;
I shed a tear for our yesterdays,
And the fears you never showed.
I shed a tear for my todays,
As I offer you goodbye;
I shed my tears of sorrow
And let your spirit fly.
Your “favourite little sister”
