To my cousins of the Butler and Bryant Families:
As I think about Bernie, I can share many memories of us growing up in Forestville, Md.
Our parents visiting your parents and the many laughs we shared. We dearly loved visiting each other.

I used to see Bernie standing in line for her bus to travel home as I did also. We often shared our time working in the government.

Peace and love the family!
