My name is Maria and I own Salon DiCapelli in Wakefield. Bernice has been a friend and loyal client for more than 15 years. When she didn't show up last week for her appointment I was concerned that she may be ill. I never imagined that she passed. To her children, grandchildren, and great-grandchild, I am so heartfully sorry for your loss. YOU are all she talked about. Although we never met, I feel as though I know each and every one of you through the many stories we shared. When Bernice spoke of her family, she beamed with love and pride. Being extremely close to my own family, this was one of most important bonds we shared. She was truly a remarkable woman. I admired her strength, her independence, her zest for life and her humor. Every time I saw her, the first thing I'd ask was how she was doing and she would always answer by saying " Mezzo e Mezzo" [ Italian for Half and Half!] She taught me about her culture and I taught her about mine. In the end we pretty much agreed that the Jews and the Italians are not so different after all! I will miss her terribly. Especially all out talks. To her family, may God give you the courage to get through this most difficult time. To Bernice.... rest in peace my friend. It has been a true privilege to have known you. XOX
