I was so hurt when I heard that Bernice had passed, but was soon filled with joy that she is now with my mom. She was such a blessing to our family . . . ironing all our clothes and making the best home made macaroni and cheese ever. She will be missed, but certainly not forgotten. The Parks family has always been a part of our family, and will continue to be. Love and prayers to you all, be strong, and keep the faith. Sandy.
