We knew the Manning family when we lived on Summit Chase Drive. Our children, David and Carrie, were friends with Eddie, Kim and Scott. We used to car pool to school together. I always thought we were lucky to have such a nice family for our neighbors. We have many fond memories. We send sincere condolences to each family member. Scott and our David were good friends before our family was transferred to Camp le Jeune , North Carolina. Sharon and Clifford Brahmstadt

I am very blessed to have been able to work with Bernie for over 30 years. Bernie has taught me so much working in the plumbing and heating business. We shared so many laughs, so many endless talks about our families. Never did he miss my birthday, even when he was away or it fell on a weekend. I will miss him terribly. My deepest sympathy goes out to the Manning family. Love sent to you all!
