Memories Timeline


  1. I knew Bernice many years ago when we were at Calvary. I became reacquainted with her last year in the Living Center. She could really ride that bicycle in therapy. She also was able to come to our Singalongs. Mildred, I know you will miss Bernice so much. Praying for all of you. Bernice is with Jesus and we'll see her again.

  2. NeNeece will be greatly missed. We have such good memories of her gumbo, pork jambalaya, fry bread,and road trips! But most of all her willingness to always help others. She was such a "doer." She loved working, and was very frustrated when she felt that she was no longer accomplishing tasks. She was such a blessing to our family. As visited with her last month, she told that she was looking forward to going "home." No doubt she in the presence of Jesus now!

  3. My most sincere condolences for your loss. May you seek God for the much needed comfort and guidance at this difficult time. (2 Cor 1:3,4)
