Our thoughts and prayers are with all of you at this difficult time. Miss Bernice was a wonderful person and always willing to help anyone. She was really good to my in-laws when they were living, and for that we were thankful. She is at peace now and that should be a blessing for all of you as she is with God now. May God give you comfort. We love you all.

Dearest ones.. I am sorry to hear of Mrs. Garcia's passing. When I worked at the George's Flower shop she was always a bright ray of sunshine when she walked through the door. Though she will be missed here on earth I'm sure her voyage to Heaven was a wonderful one. All of my thoughts and prayers are with you through this difficult time. May God Bless your souls and bring you comfort.
