Darlene and Family, I am so sorry for your loss. I loved Bernice all my life. I have so many memories of her from our days of visiting Pa Henry and Uncle Lee in Snow Creek and of course all of her sweet brothers. I always thought she was the most beautiful lady and I can still remember listening to her talk. She had a beautiful voice. I cannot come today due to babysitting the grand children after school, but my thoughts and prayers will always be there for you and the extended family. Rest In Peace Bernice. I love you forever.

I will always remember her welcoming smile, listening ear, and gentleness. She was a wonderful Sunday School teacher. I have no doubts that God is walking with her now, and I'm sure she is still in the choir.

My thoughts and prayers are with Darlene and family during this time of sorrow in the loss of her Mother. Bernice was my babysitter as a baby and I called her my second, Mom. Bernice was so beautiful, soft spoken, kind and lovable. Her love for others and our precious Lord was incredible. Sadly missed by Debi Mills Clingenpeel

Darlene and Family,
So sorry to hear of your Mom's passing. She was a very special lady and I always will remember her for helping with VBS at the church when I was growing up. Later, your Mom wrote down a boy's name for a baby shower when I was living in Germany and we chose "Scott Franklin Vernon, the name your Mom wrote down for our son born on Christmas Day 1977.
So many fond memories of your family that me, my sister, Judy and my Mom, Lessie Hall will cherish of her and the rest of your family.
You are in our thoughts and prayers.
Darlene Hall Earles
