So very sorry to hear of Bernice's passing. Such a kind and sweet sweet lady she was. Loved by all. Never ever did we see a cross word spoken by her. Such a lovely and beautiful person who lived her life for her Lord and family. She will be missed.

So sorry to her of the loss of such a sweet lady. Prayers to all the family and hugs to my dear classmate Jim.

I so appreciated Bernice for her mission leadership at church, but beyond that I simply enjoyed and appreciated who she was at the very depth of her being. One of my most enjoyable times in Collins was spent with her father, Ernest, on her brother, Howard’s farm. They were each the same beautiful gentle beings. Pastor Penny
