Dear Bob, Rick, and Family:I am so sorry about the passing of my dear friend, Bernie. My sincere condolences to all. She was one of the first people I met when I moved into St Peter's parish. Her smile, upbeat personality, kindness, and always present sense of humor will be missed. May the angels lead you into Paradise, Bernie, and grant you peace.

I am very thankful that Aunt Bernie was a part of my life. Her dear heart and wonderful spirit will stay with me forever. She had such a hearty laugh and positive outlook that you couldn’t help but feel better talking to her. She was a comfort to me when I lost my husband. Her strong faith helped me to believe that he was in a better place. So I know without a doubt that is where she is now. Rest In Peace dear Aunt Bernie, you were so well loved.

Always laughing and smiling, never angry or a cross word, that is the Aunt Bernie I will always remember. A strong Catholic and a great friend, a better person you will never meet. I will miss her greatly but I know she is now with her loving sisters, parents, and the many others she loved and who loved her, her reward for a life well lived.
