  1. Keith, know that I have fond memories of your Mom and Dad during their service with Chesterfield. Be comforted by their time with your family during this time of mourning and celebration.

  2. So sorry to hear of her passing

  3. So many fond memories of Bernice,
    She made many of my dresses when I was a pre-teen, teenager. My family didn’t have much money..so Sheriff Gates would pick me up for Church 3 times a week….Bernice knew I needed Church clothes. She would make me dresses. We all went to Trinity United Methodist back then. Later I would work with her at the Post Office, she was a joy to me! We also shared the same birhday! She had a huge heart and smile. God blessed me with her in my life. Prayers go out to her children and all her family.
