  • Miss Bernice is one of a kind. I could never understand how so much energy could be contained in that sweet , little body. She is one of the dearest persons I could ever hope to meet. Always welcoming and always smiling. I could never come to her house without her wanting to feed me, and what delicious food it was! She knew I could not resist those rolls! I will miss her presence, but I know she will be busy in Heaven, doing something. Miss Bernice didn’t know how to be idle. My sincerest condolences to you, Becky. I know how close you and your mother are. It makes it very hard when you must say goodbye , but you have been blessed to have so many treasured memories with her. I hope you will find comfort knowing that she touched the lives of so many people. I will always love her.
