Karla and All ---
I was very sorry to hear of Bernice's passing. When I learned of it, I went back and thought of the few times we were together. I remember a time of family gathering at the "Y" (?) Where Bernice brought potato salad! It was the best potato salad I've ever eaten!
My condolences to all of the family that loved her as I'm sure she loved them.
