I have such pleasant memories of Ms. Bernice. Loving, sweet and CLASSY. She always drove nice cars too! I was fortunate to be a buddy of Richard's in our younger days. She and Mr. Winston always were so great and treated me like family. Richard, I am so sorry for your loss. I'm hoping that I can reunite with you as soon as possible.

Bernice Primeaux, have I known all my life , 60 years. She was a best friend to my mother and second mother to me and my siblings. A trend setter , being one of the first
professional women in Lake Charles having worked for Mr Joe Lowenthal. Bernice always took time to sit and have coffee, visit and listen, and offer advise. I knew her as a loving wife, mother, loyal friend and true Christian. Glad you and mom got to be together on her birthday. I pray you found many jewels in your crown to lay at Jesus' feet.

Peace be to you and grace from Him knowing that she has be given her reward.
Blessings, Chuck & Dona Izzo

I have such fond memories of Bernice! She, my mom and daddy (Lee and Shelton Letbetter) and I enjoyed spending time catching up at our family reunions. She had such a sweet spirit and was a joy to know as I was going up. My prayers are for the families and friends whose lives she touched. May God grant you peace and comfort.

"Aunt" Bernice wasn't related by blood, but related by heart. She was a second mother to my dad and was loved dearly by all of the Moss's. I can just see her and my grandmother, Phyllis Moss, up there now reunited. Rest in Peace Aunt Bernice.
Many thoughts and prayers to her first family from her second. We love you.
