Dear Ken, Karl, Kirk and your families, We are sorry for your loss!!! Aunt Bernice was our favorite aunt! She was always positive and upbeat! Every time we encountered her we came away from the experience felling good. What a rare quality she possessed to have that effect on others! In our high tech world phone books have become obsolete so we are unable to “look up” your addresses and send snail mail condolence cards. This will have to do. With our sympathy, Carol and Al Schmidt
Peace of mind is a call away. We're here when you need us most.

We thank God for the joy in having Aunt Bernice in our lives. From the first time Kathleen met her, she always felt a welcomed member of the family, and enjoyed sharing a pew at Trinity. We remember the wonderful food that came from her tiny kitchen, especially her deviled eggs and cookies. Rest in peace, Aunt Bernice. Dennis and Kathleen Bowman
