I enjoyed visiting with Bernice when I had the chance! She was always very supportive of Gary and I! I always heard great things about them as neighbors, living across the street from my in-laws. I'll always remember that Jay and Bernice gave us a very nice gift of a set of Tupperware bowls (with the push-in type lids) for our wedding! I just couldn't believe it! Bernice was a hospitable hostess when we visited her, and she took us on a tour of her house a few years ago. I'll always have fond memories of her support of our family!

Sorry to hear of her passing and only wish throughout the years we could have

enjoyed their company more often. Our love goes out to the family and wish

our best to all of them.
