When I was a little girl, I remember Bernice and her late husband Bill visiting us at my grandparents house. My grandmother was her sister. When my siblings and I found out Uncle Bill and Aunt Bernice were coming for a visit, we would get so excited. Uncle Bill always had great stories to tell us, but the best thing, he would empty his pockets and give us kids all his change! I remember Aunt Bernice always had a sense of grace and style about her. I loved to listen to her and my grandmother talk. I am sure she is enjoying catching up with all her siblings in heaven. We will miss Bernice on earth, but if we have a personal faith in Christ as Bernice had, we have the sweet hope of seeing her again.

I'm so sorry to know your mother has passed. You can feel God's peace as you know He has prepared for her a home in heaven. I always admired your mom and her strong spirit as she suffered through the the death of her son and husband.
