My sympathy to Bernice's family....especially her kids and grandkids. I know how much you will miss her. I pray God will comfort your aching hearts. I have a special place in my heart for Bernice. Most times when we would run into each other she'd say "There's my buddy! How are you doin'?" I enjoyed visiting with her. ....it was fun and meaningful....she always seemed to have something new to tell me that I could learn from. Charles
