I will miss you. I know I only worked with you briefly as a teenager at Storla, but you made a lasting impression on me. I remember feeling like part of a big family there, and you were a joy to work with. May your joy and happiness shine on all of your loved ones forever.

Uncle Billy, Brenda, Brian and Families,

My thoughts are with you all. Aunt Bernice was such a sweetheart and I can only pray that my mom was one of many that were there to meet her when she entered into Heaven. She will truly be missed by all of us who loved her.

I always enjoyed visiting with your mom during our rummage sales--she always had a smile and gave us a few laughs for the day. Take Care.

We will miss Bernice very much. She was such a special part of our lives and we'll miss talking to her on the telephone every day. Take care Brenda--we are here for you.
