Dear Roslyn and Family,
It is with a heavy heart and sadness to hear of Aunt Bernice’s sudden passing. Your mother meant so much to those ho had the honor of having her in their lives. She will be so missed by mom, I too, will miss hearing about their weekly excursions. I thank the good Lord I had the opportunity to reach out to her during covid to say hello from time to time, to exchange recipes, hoping to help fill in some time….. I will cherish that time. A mother lives forever within our hearts…..I am thinking of you during this time, I hope to be home soon and will reach out to you. Forever in my heart, love Betty

To Roslyn and Family,
So very sad to hear of the sudden passing of your dear Mother and Grandmother.
This is a very difficult time for you all. Please know that you are in our thoughts and prayers in the days and months ahead. We will miss her, as we have already at All Saints Church. This church was her passion and she will be dearly missed.
I think we all know, she is in a place of Love and Eternal rest right now and that gives us all peace.
Love to you all,
Rick and Ida Engram

I was so sorry to hear Aunt Bernice had passed away. She was a kind and gentle lady. My thoughts and prayers are with you and your family at this time. May your memories help you through the sad days.

Roslyn and family,
We were so sorry to hear of Aunt Bernice’s passing. I will always remember her as a soft-spoken, sweet, caring lady that we would love to go visit on our Sunday trips to Pouch Cove with Daddy when we were kids. Years later when I would see her and Uncle Clarence out shopping she always had a kind word to say and a warm greeting. She always spoke so lovingly of all her family.
Hold all your wonderful memories of her close to your heart. May she rest in peace.

To Rosalind and all Bernice’s family. Sincere sympathy to all of you. Bernice was one of the dearest, sweetest people I have ever known. She and Clarence were very special to me when I lived in Pouch Cove. I didn’t know he had died until I read this obituary. My favourite memory of Bernice is her serving at the Altar as Eucharistic assistant. How she loved serving her Lord this way. She always told me I could call on her any time. She was so faithful. I will forever picture her in her white alb. She was a gentle, loving person. God has now reunited her with her beloved Clarence. Farewell dear friends. I hope we will meet again Rest in peace and rise in rise in glory. Love to you both. Canon Shirley and Charlie
