Bernice was a precious gift from God above, so much beauty, Grace and love. She touched my heart in so many ways. Her smile so bright even on her bad days. I was blessed to have the opportunity to care for such a sweet and spunky lady. My return to work won't be the same without her there, no more peek a boo'a being heard or her singing from the other room. May you rest in peace my beautiful angel. Crystal
