Our memories are numerous and cherished for a special lady and much loved Aunt. Although our relationship was a long distance one, through phone calls, e-mails and visits we shared news and events in each other lives. Aunt Bernice faithfully sent weekly letters to her sister, Rita( Paul's Mom). She loved to keep us up to date on the lives of her kids and grandkids. Ten years ago, Aunt Bernice and Uncle Jim opened their hearts and homes to provide us with a wonderful visit to Colorado. Seven years ago she christened our "Colorado Room" which is filled with photos and mementos of that visit. On the wall is a beautiful painting of Lake Dillon she created for us. It continues to bring fond memories to life. Aunt Bernice will be remembered as a caring, loving woman. Her family filled her heart. We remember humorous stories of her sons growing up or times spent sitting in the metal bleachers cheering on her granddaughters. Even her most recent e-mails exhibited humor in her situation. To Uncle Jim and the Gruber clan- our hearts go out to all of you. We send you our love and prayers at this difficult time. How rich our lives are to have been touched by hers. Love you, Aunt Bernice

To the Gruber family: I am so sorry to hear of Bernice's passing. She was such a wonderful friend to my parents. I grew up hearing so many stories from my parents, especially after "bridge night". In the later years, mom and dad didn't get to see the Grubers as much as they would have liked, but when they did get together, a good time was had by all. To Jim, Vince, Jeff and your families, thank you for sharing Bernice with my family. She was truly a terrific person and anchored a great family. Keeping you all in my thoughts and prayers. Leigh Ann (Moore) Peters

To the Moore Family,
Sorry that I didn't call you guys to let you know about mom. I know that you guys were a big part of the Cottonwood parties and bridge night. I have quite a few memories of going to your house on Green Mountain with mom and dad, and spending time with the "Moore Girls". I hope that all of you are doing well. Mom would have loved the fact that you sent this note.
