Very sorry to hear of Aunt Berna's passing. Will always remember her as a gracious hostess a fun traveler and warm hearted being. My earliest memory of her was when she was babysitting me when my sister was being born, then when we were both stationed in Europe. You touched many lives in your travels a d will be missed by all you met. Hugs to all.

"Aunt Berna you picked up where my Mom left off when she passed in 1997 a few months after my youngest daughter Addison was born. You always sent me and my kids Birthday cards and Christmas cards with a little extra $$ in them. I thank you for that and looked forward to them. You helped by filling that void I was missing with my Mom and you always made us feel so special and I love you for that. I always looked forward to seeing you when we came back home each time to catch up! I would call often to chat and I will miss all this." My Aunt Bernadeen....man, what a very special, great- fabulous person she was. She always made sure her hair, makeup and clothes was to the T!!!! Gorgeous woman!!! She was the very last of our family on my Mom's (the Norris's) side...now they are all gone from this earth. Just me, my brothers, sisters, our families, our kids are left along with all the our cousins and their families. Same goes for my Dad and all his side of the family are gone as well. Well God has Aunt Berna now and she is with her husband-Pete, son-Ricky, her Mom and Dad and my Mom-Ruby and Dad-R.A. and all her brothers and sisters. They all have long awaited for they day to see you again beautiful, I bet you all had a huge 4th of July celebration!!! We all need to Love the ones your with and tell them and show them daily, you never know if you will have another tomorrow with them!!! I love you and will miss you Berna so very much! Say hi to all our loved ones and I will see you and all of them on the other side! Love, Rannie, Miranda and Addison

I remember Bernie for he love of everyone and everything. She was always so welcoming to the whole crowd of kids that would tromp through her house on a regular basis. She was one of the few people and I can count them on one hand that when you would talk to her and tell her what was going on in your life she made you feel as if you where the most important person in the world at that time. Putting up with all of us showed she had the patience of a saint and she will be missed by everyone she had ever met. To Randy , Shere , Roni and the whore family my deepest sympathy and Bernie thanks for all the memories.
