Al--The celebration is to HONOR Chris, not to mourn him--Yikes!

My best wishes and gratitude to Chris to all of his dedicated contributions to Pleasanton and our community over the years. Enjoy the day!

My condolences to the family of Chris Beratlis. I didn't even know this happened. I remember Mr. Beratlis to be such a kind and happy person. We have done some business over the years in regards to mortgages and he was always very professional and all his plans were very calculated. I thought that was very cool. Rest in peace Mr. B.

If you are a true friend of Chris Beratlis, then right now would be a good time to pray for him.......he needs your support.
To me, Chris is Mr. Pleasanton.....this is his home town, where he has served it well. Without his past efforts the Downtown would not be what it is today. He proves that one man can make a difference, so take time to thank him for it.
Blesings to you Chris, we love you. Howard and Kathleen Neely

Chris and his wife were always so sweet to me. I would look forward to the dinners him and Glenda would come to at my house. They were the only ones that could give my Dad some grief about me and he would let them live it down. Chris will be missed very much. I am so thankful that I was able to see him the last time I came out there. I will forever have good memories of such a good man. I love you and GLenda
