My dear grandma, it is really hard to know that you are no longer with us. You have been a big part of my life for as long as I can remember. I have fleeting memories of being at the farm down by Wawawai when you were married to Berni's dad, Earl. Then I remember living in Colton with my mom and you and Berni were living a block away. You worked at the Post Office. Bernie and I grew up under your watchful eye as sisters, even though she is really my aunt. Then when you lived in Boise and I got to spend the summer down there. We played from sun up til sun down,. You let us take horse riding lessons which served me well when, a few years later, I got my own horse. I remember when you and grandpa Frank took Berni and me to Canada. Bernie and I were swimming at the hot springs in Banff and when you saw me standing on the high-dive you yelled at me to get down so I jumped off. You always included me in your life all through my life. We shared a lot of times together as I grew older. I always felt at home wherever you were and I know that my mom was grateful to you for taking me in the summer so she could have a break. Then later in life when times were not so great for me, once again you took me in. I needed a fresh start and you needed someone to help you with grandpa Frank. We went out to lunch every day and we used to power shop together and you wore me out up in the mall in Lewiston so grandpa Frank and I would sit on one of the benches while you were in Macy's. Throughout my life there were times when I was at odds with the whole world, but never with you. You were always by my side. Fast forward to the last few years of your life. I know it was rough for you to age but I am glad that you lived long enough to see me straighten my life out and I so truly enjoyed visiting you up in Post FALLS even though it was tough to see you getting weaker. I am so happy that I was able to spend time with you last August and I was telling my friends that I needed to come and visit you in the winter too. Well, I'm coming up next week but you won't be there. You will be sorely missed by all, especially me. Rest in peace until we are together again. I love you grandma.
I am so sorry for your loss. May the God of comfort give you peace and help during this time. Something that always helps me when facing situations like these, is the scripture at Revelation 21:4, where it says "And he will wipe out every tear from their eyes, and death will be no more, neither will mourning nor outcry nor pain be anymore. The former things have passed away." I'm sure you can understand why that helps me. I sincerely hope it can help you too.
My Grandma, I hope you know you were way more than just a Grandma to me!!! I was lucky to live with you for awhile when I was a teen and being with you gave me a sense of security that I needed during that time. Not only was I lucky enough to have that time with you but I got to spend all summers at Grandma's House!! The absolute best childhood memories I have!! You spoiled us with breakfast every morning, dinner on the table and ice cream before bed!! It was superb!! When you weren't taking us to the pool, or roller skating along the dike, we were shopping or my absolute favorite playing dress up in all of your beautiful gowns!!! OHHHH how I wanted to be just like you!!! After the childhood days went away I was lucky enough to see your dance moves when I would come to visit on the weekends so we could go dancing at the Eagles, Elks and a few other country dance clubs. Most of the time I was the wall flower because you got ALL of the attention, but I didn't mind because I loved watching you dance!! I will cherish those memories forever Grandma!! Not many grandkids can say they experienced the fun that we had together!! You made my life complete and I miss you terribly!! I imagine you dancing in Heaven with Grandpa Frank & Brett and that makes my heart happy!! I love you so much Grandma and I'm thankful for the last time we spent together sitting in the sun on your front porch.. you looked beautiful as always... I will hold that lasting memory in my heart always!! One day we will be together again, until then I look forward to you visiting me in my dreams!!! I love you! Love your Grandaughter
My Condolences to all of Bernita Family.
My heartfelt condolences for your loss of your loved one. Please find comfort in the knowledge that God promises to put an end to all the things that have plagued mankind for centuries including pain, suffering and death (Revelation 21:3,4). May these promises from God's word, the Bible give you comfort now and real hope for the future. My deepest sympathy.
My favorite memory of Aunt Bernita was how great she was to me when is was growing up and visiting Mike in Lewiston. She was always very kind and generous and opened up her home and heart whenever I visited. Visiting during the summer was always something I looked forward to and sad when I had to leave.
Miss you Bernita, God speed & God bless.
Your favorite nephew :);
I remember going to uncle Calvin’s and aunt Bernita’s. House. It was not very often as we lived many miles apart but I still have those memories. I know she was a special person and loved her family dearly. She is looking down on all of you and smiling about what a special family she raised
To my beloved mother, you have been with me since the day I was born. It is hard to realize that we cannot" go to mom's" any longer to visit you or enjoy a meal. The world will not be the same without Mom. You will always be in my heart, your memory will never fade. In a way you are still here as I look at all the kids,grand kids, and g.grand Kids they are all a part of you.
Our family has been blessed to have had you with us over 93 years. You lived a long life and I believe you may be correct in this. You hated going to doctors as you stated, if you go they will find something wrong. LOL
Better to go get your hair done (every Thursday) There was never a gray hair on that head.
Good bye mom until we meet again.
I love you
