Michael Bernard Obituary

Obituary (Second)

Michael DeLfonte Bernard


July 8th 1961


The Life Series of Winnie R Bernard and Lonnie L Bernard

Volume I

Winnie R Williams Bernard (mother), the 1st in the series, went out of print (earthly edition-being), November 3rd 1995. If you choose to do so you may revisit this volume through the doors and windows of your memory and spirit.

Volume II

Lonnie L Bernard (father), the 2nd in the series went out of print (earthly being) October 9th 2018. At your leisure you may also choose to revisit various pages of this volume in the same way as previously stated. Also, with this volume you may visit for a life show.

Volume III

Michael D Bernard, this volume is now out of print (earthly being). It went out of print on September 16th 2023. It also may be accessed the same way as the other volumes previously mentioned. Michael, 62, of Winnabow, NC died on 9/16/2023 at Novant Hospital after being hit by a car in Wilmington North Carolina. He was born in Somerville, New Jersey July 8th 1961 and was the son of Lonnie and Winnie Bernard.

In exploring any of these volumes through the magic of your minds if you choose to do so, please attempt to focus on the positives of any of these out of print editions. Keep in mind that each of us spiritual beings having our own human experience encounter many mountains that seem too high to climb, valleys that seem too low, and rivers too wide to cross. However, we somehow always seem to survive and make it through. This has been me and this has been you. We now arrive at Volume IV. Still in print (earthly existence.)

Volume IV

Michael is survived by his brother Lantice L Bernard of Missouri (the show me state). Four aunts and two uncles. Ms. Dosher Miller (Winnabow NC)  Mr. Herbert Willams II - (Uncle Jr), Ms. Velma Williams (Winnabow NC), Ms. Jane Bernard State ( Mr Simon State Louisville, Georgia), Ms. Princess Gardner (Sunset Beach NC), and a host of cousins residing in the United States.

At Michaels request there was not to be a service performed. Please honor him and his memory in whatever fashion you desire. Let your spirit be your guide. To all spiritual beings having their own human experience be blessed eternally.

Spiritual Beings and Human Experience


In the game of life, we are dealt a hand

We do our very best to play as best we can


Is the ruff, tuff appearance of my life because of me?

Was the rough and tough appearance of my life just my destiny?


No more lonely days

No more lonely nights

No more life battles

Shall I have to fight


No more am I - yes you're still there,

Never no more time - shall we ever share


My battle is done

My spirit has won

No more time to spare

No more cross to bare


No longer a slave

At last I’m free

Peace I wish for you

Peace I’ve gotten for me


My soul is with Christ, No cage holds me

You’re still there, At last I’m free


No longer in bondage, My soul is free

When you say prayers, Please remember me


So know one day, You will be me

Out of bondage, Your soul set free


Exist you still do, I breathe no more

Angels have guided me, Through heaven's doors

A very special thank you to my cousin Herbert Williams III, better knowns as Twiggy, for being a true standup guy for not closing your eyes or turning your back and informing me of the death of my brother. To you I will always be greatful and thankful… Lantice L Bernand.

Per the request of Michael D. Bernard to his brother Lantice L Bernard.

To all concerned, curious, wondering and interested individuals.

Greetings to you all,

For those of you who choose to do so please hold dear the good memories of Michael D Bernard in your minds, hearts, souls, and spirits. At his request there will be no services honoring or marking his life. As most of you know or possibly feel, he was tired but restless. Seeking and searching but never finding the peace he seemed to be chasing, it always eluded him. He has now finally captured it, or it has captured him. Please continue onward and upward with your lives as I and he know you will. Keep in mind that what his life was could have been anyone of us. The Michael D Bernard parade and or show is officially over. Dear brother, I am so very sorry.


Food for thought.

Please know that the following statement below is not intended to offend anyone, it is just actual and factual. If you are offended, then you need to take a look in the mirror and ask yourself, what am I guilty of?

“This look (in the mirror) could be very soul shattering. Be very careful.”

“My, my, my, my, You are so beautiful to all great pretenders, please continue pretending.  Perhaps at the end of the day “Your Life”, you will be given a beautiful jeweled crown with the with the initials GP engraved on it. You really look fantabolous! “

For those of you who always let these words flow from your lips, if there is anything I can do or you need anything just let me know. Meanwhile you are in the corner with a candle, four leaf clover, a rabbit’s foot, rosary beads, and the Holy Bible begging, pleading, and praying to God – Lord please don’t let him ask me for anything. Jesus please don’t let him or her call me and ask me for this, that, and the other. We as a whole, should be saying you and the deceased and your family are in our prayers and thoughts. “What is your address?” for anyone who has spoken these words, if you so desire to do anything feel free to reach out at the address below.
