I am sorry to hear of Bernies passing. I worked with her for years at the plant. She and I had the same name, so we nicknamed each other big Bernie and little Bernie. She had a great laugh. My condolences to the family. RIP little Bernie.
So sorry for your loss. Bernie & I worked together for years. She was such a good friend to me. I will really miss her. She was such a great person. My heart goes out to the family. RIP my friend.
May the promise found at Isaiah 25:8 bring some comfort in the death of Berdeena Chase. "He will swallow up death forever. The Sovereign Lord will wipe away the tears from all faces." Just imagine, no more pain and grief due to the death of a love one! By means of the Kingdom that Jesus Christ taught us to pray for at Matthew 6:9,10; God is going to remove sickness, old age and death from the human family. God's original purpose for the earth being a paradise will be realized.
Dave, sorry to see the passing of Berdeena. Was really surprised. I remember you guys always visiting us gals in the office at Bluffs Dodge. My sympathies to you.
Our deepest condolences to Mr. David and family
Scott and Jackie Clover Lake Charles, La
