  • Hello JP! This is Ronda (Worsfold) Bern. I happened to be on Daily Reporter website to look up an obituary and came across this article from you. Of course, since you and Curt are long time friends it caught my eye. But what I wanted to tell you is that I always wanted to be a lawyer and grew up dreaming about it. In high school I had the privilege of working for your dad in his law firm, Greer, Nelson, Montgomery Barry & Bovee. Your dad interviewed me and hired me. I admired him so much and he was bigger than life to me. He taught me to say "yes" and not "yea". He was a great role model and I still think of him fondly today. One other thing I remember about him was that convertible he drove. He always left the top off and the keys in it. I asked him about it one day and he said, "If anyone wants my car that bad, they can have it."

    I'm sure you and your family are proud of your dad, that's clear to see and I can only imagine that he is equally as proud of you and his family. I hope someone else sharing memories of your dad gives you a comforting feeling even after he's been gone for so long. Take care and God Bless You.
