“Whenever I’m asked a question about what I do to live so long, I tell them ‘I know you’ve heard the saying, You are what you eat,'” confessed Bernando. “My dad told me not to eat ordinary red meat. He said lamb is okay. But stay away from hot dogs, french fries. Don’t eat them.”
He also kept his mind sharp by being a voracious reader and solving crossword puzzles and playing checkers. In addition to that, he went around the country doing speaking engagements and even shared some of his recipes here.
“My dad taught me to have faith in God and He’ll take care of you,” says Bernando. “And so far, it’s happened.”
Rest in peace Bernando. You will be missed.
