Bernice was a VERY special person in my life and that of my entire family.  Her caring, loving legacy lives on in all of us...she showed unshelfish love to everyone she met, always wore a smile, made everyone feel that they were worth something, and had a generous heart for children.  I'm so sorry I can't be there today to celebrate her life as I am out of town at a wedding.  But you are all in my thoughts and prayers as you honor this wonderful lady that we'll all miss.
