I did not know Bernadette, yet it is plain to see she was a loving and kind individual. I appreciate the scripture sited at the beginning as it gives a measure of comfort. That scripture brings to mind Romans 15:4 where it says in part : ...so that through our endurance and through the comfort from the scriptures we might have hope.
My heart goes out to the family. She will be missed.

I knew Bernadette for many years and will always recall the sweetest nature. I will miss her but I know that she is with the angels.
