Bernie, Bob, and Dave and Families
Was surprised and sorry to see the passing of your mother, grandmother, and great grandmother. She was a great lady and model to her families and the community. She saw unbelievable change in her 101 years and always had time to mentor and teach. She will be missed by all who knew her, but most of all by her family.
Our prayers are with your families as you celebrate her life. Gods blessings to you all

I am sorry to read of your loss. Your mother was a very special lady (and not just because we shared the same birthday.) Sending prayers for all your family.

Heartfelt sympathy to the family of dear Bernette. I have been blessed to have known this wonderful lady from the days of her volunteering at Winona Health to the time she spent living at Watkins Senior Living. We shared many laughs and interesting discussions about life in general. RIP my friend, so many memories to cherish ❤️
