Bernadette, There is no way to share the laughter, joy, passion, care, support, tenderness, that you gave me, and I tried to give you. You own a huge piece of my heart now, and forever. The eulogy I gave, does not begin to scratch the surface of my adoration. You continue to be with me every day. Rest in Peace. My Love. Bill

Today I sit here remembering the fun times that we've had. As the years have gone by, I realize today that you have been the only person in my life who bonded with me without any expectation. I was blessed to have a friend like you in my life. Your friendship meant the world to me. You will never be forgotten.

I love you Bernadette.

Bernadette was a beautiful friend inside and out, I first met Bernadette and Bill Lytell at karaoke at Brother's Encore The Pub. An instant friendship with them one I will always cherish. I pray that God wraps his arms around family and friends in this time of loss. A beautiful person taken way to soon.

I was only blessed with knowing her for a short time. She always had a smile and a kind word even when i said nothing. I can only say the world lost a very special person but God gained a wonderful angle. My love and strength go out to everyone's life she touched.
