    I was so sorry to hear of the passing of Bernice. She was a sweet lady and a friend to my mother Frances. We spent lots of time at her house when we were young girls. The family is in my thoughts and prayers.
    With deepest sympathy.

    I can not put in words how much Bernice meant To Bill and I, we have been friends for over 57 years. We always commented where we were when Kennedy was shoot, I was sitting in her chair getting my hair done. She was very dear to me, I could say anything to her and knew it would not be repeated. We shared many prayer, tears and joys together. I know God had a beautiful place and a crown waiting for her. We will keep you all in our prayers.
    God bless all of you!
