Dear family of Bernice,
I so apologize that I cannot be present for her Monday funeral. I am still in Florida but have my flight home booked for Apr. 16th.
Bernice was such a loyal friend and volunteer for the many musicals I directed at St. Mary's. She was the financial whiz that tabulated all the patron returns for a number of years.
I'll always remember "her spot" at Sunday Masses in the back of church on the right side....you could always count on her being there at every Mass she attended.
I'll be sending al donation to the HTS school debt in her memory. That would please her. Char Kreuz and her Kreuz Clan
