After Bernice moved back to Washington from Arizona, .she came to our West Seattle High School yearly reunions and our class of '51 ladies luncheons. She was such a sweet caring lady and always happy and smiling. I was fortunate enough to ride with her to the ladies luncheons for a few years. We will miss her at our reunions and luncheons. My sympathy to all her family and Bill.
