I was saddened to hear about Bernice's death and wish to express my sincere sympathy to her family. I am Kara's and Vic's grandmother. I used to visit Bernice often when she was in assisted living. We had many enjoyable chats. I always looked forward to my visits with her. She talked about her family and friends and she proudly shared pictures of her grandchildren. She obviously loved her family very much. May the many precious memories of all the many beautiful experiences you shared together serve to comfort you, sustain you and give you peace.
