  1. I cannot believe that Bernice is gone….I thought the world of him…I will never forget going to look at Chrismas lights with him and seeing the blue nosed cow…Only he would laugh at this cause he was the only other one that saw it, and then for Christmas that year he bought me a stuffed cow and painted it’s nose blue….I loved him dearly and I know without a doubt that he is in heaven and God just got one of the greatest men in the world.

  2. What a good friend and my what a godly man. I was sad at the news of Bernice’s home going and yet happy in that he is now in the very presence of the Savior he loved so dearly and served so faithfully. He made a real impact on my life and ministry, I will never forget the man, what he stood for and all the good times we had together worshipping the Lord and fellowshipping. I sure loved to hear him sing and teach the Bible. A lot of precious memories. Sister Doris and family you have our deepest sympathy and are in our prayers!
