Already I miss our days at lunch and dinner and short rides. You were truly a strong woman and the sweetest soul I have known in many a day. Your genuine and soft hearted laugh and always concerned about how we faired, will always be with us. We will miss your visits to Fredericksburg and Sunday afternoon dinners after church. Thank you for the years of wisdom and insight about life and for the encouragement you gave. Rest now peacefully Aunt Bernice.
You were not able to sing with us in recent years, but you are remembered with great fondness from the days when you sang with One Voice Chorus. We know you are singing with the angels now. Rest peacefully…
Your friends from One Voice Chorus
Family of Bernice,
We are so sorry for the loss of Bernice. She was a faithful and loving neighbor to my family (The Quarles) for over 50 years. She will be
missed by all who knew her.
May she rest in peace.
