We will miss her. She had the biggest heart in the world like no one I have ever known. I have wonderful memories of our childhood growing up together. God Bless you Bernadette xxoo

For anyone who met and got to know Bernadette, they came away with the knowledge of what was good, what was love, and became a gentler human because of that encounter. Eternal rest with the Lord, sweet lady. God Bless You forever.
