    Praying that wonderful memories will comfort you and your family during this time. Sorry for your loss.


  2. Having grown up one house over, Bernarda was like family.
    My mom who recently passed, I’m sure was there in heaven to greet her good friend.
    It was funny to hear them both talk to each other, as both had heavy accents and came from different cultures, not sure how they understood each other, lol.
    knowing that their both in a better place, free from all confines, pain and suffering brings me great comfort.
    I’m grateful for all the good memories…love you Bernarda and thank you for everything.


  3. Rest in peace Mrs pariza. 🙏 sending love the the entire family
