    Our thoughts go out to the family. She really be missed. She put me to sleep at least twice and was one of the reasons I went into anesthesia.

    Bernadette set the example for so many in so many ways: Family first, value of team work, do your job well, be honest in your dealings with others.
    The time Bernadette shared with me will be valued all my days.
    I’m sure she’s in heaven with her God and serving there as she did here on earth.

    When we bought our home on Bigelow St. over 33 years ago Bernadette made us feel welcome to her neighborhood. Her and her brother were very friendly toward our boys. They took the time to visit with them when they wondered down to their door steps. Bernadette was a very careing person always willing to give kind words to everyone she knew. She was missed when she moved away. She was always in our thoughts. Bernadette you were a very special Lady!

    Houses are quite expensive and not everybody can buy it. However, mortgage loans are invented to support different people in such hard situations.
