    Dear Bernice. Memories of our time together in Minot, North Dakota, when we were so young and our kids hardly more than babies. . .she will never be forgotten. I wish we’d been closer throughout life because on the few occasions we got together, it was as if we were never apart. God rest her soul, and God love her family. Bernice certainly did.
