  1. I was afforded the opportunity to meet and care for Mrs. Bernabei as a home health nurse. From our first meeting, her concern and care for others was apparent- not just for members of her own family, but anyone she interacted with. She had endured painful losses recently, but was always grounded by her faith in dealing with sorrow. She could cry and laugh with almost the same ease by the time I met her. She was petite in stature, but her heart and soul were queen sized, and full of love. I will miss her.

  2. With deepest sympathy and sincere regret that November and December have seen such loss for your family over the past two years. Please take renewed comfort and joy in the spirit of the holiday season.

  3. WE WILL TRULY MISS OUR WONDERFUL NEIGHBOR AND FRIEND. WE WILL MISS THE CONVERSATIONS OVER THE FENCE AND HER DELICIOUS ZUCCHINI BREAD (IT WAS THE BEST). WE TRULY CHERISHED OUR FRIENDSHIP WITH HER AND ANGELA OVER THE YEARS. OUR THOUGHTS AND PRAYERS ARE WITH ALL OF THE FAMILY. IT HAS BEEN A ROUGH YEAR FOR ALL OF YOU AND WE PRAY THAT GOD WILL GIVE YOU THE STRENGTH THAT YOU NEED IN THIS TIME OF SORROW. LOVE, LINDA, PHIL, KYLE AND HERSHEY

With Sympathy, John, Holly, Jack & Ethan Deemer

  6. Dear Patsy and Family — Please accept our most sincere sympathy to you and your entire family. I think I have known your Mom my entire life. She was a wonderful lady — always giving of herself –and so much of what she was has rubbed off on all of you.

We are sorry that we are unable to share our sympathy in person but know that you are all in our thoughts. Love, Josie & Sam
