have a memory or condolence to add?

My wife and I want to offer our condolences and prayers to Bernice's family. I worked with Bernice at Burd and Fletcher for many years when Burd and Fletcher was located in downtown Kansas City, Missouri.
I drove her to work and back home for many years until she got married. She was a wonderful, kind and caring person. My wife got to know her as well. Every Christmas Bernice and her mother would give us a loaf of the Povetica that her mother would make. It was the best we ever had. We will give a donation to St. Jude in Bernice's memory. We will say a novena for Bernice and for her family. May God Bless her and all her family.
