to Bernie’s family. I am so sorry for your loss.
I am a 2nd (?) cousin (her and my Dad were 1st cousins) and had the opportunity to meet her several years ago when doing some genealogy in Covington. I have never forgotten her, she was so warm and welcoming. I would appreciate it if you could contact me please at

There are souls in this world who have the gift of finding joy everywhere; and of leaving it behind them when they go.
Your mom was certainly one… Prayers of hope and remembrance.
