    My sympathy to the family; I always enjoyed visiting Tom and Bernice. She was a great cook and a wonderful person. God Bless!

    Dear Susan and Tommy,

    My heart goes out to you. Your mother was such a wonderful woman! She was one of the most gentle and sweet people ever! I’ll never forget that when my dad was in the hospital for almost six months before he died, your mom sent him a card EVERY DAY. And she put effort into recalling stories from their childhood and life. It was extraordinary. We taped the cards to the walls of his room and eventually we had all the walls covered. What an amazing outpouring of love from her!

    I’m sorry I won’t be able to come to the memorial service. I’ll be traveling then. But my heart and spirit will be with you.

    Susan – I was so sad to read of your mother’s passing. It has been many, many years since I lasts saw her, but I do remember her as a very beautiful and gracious lady, always making me feel welcome when I visited.

    And, it has been too, too many years since I last saw you – I remember what a special good friend you were and have many happy memories.

    My sympathy
