Condolences

The family of Bernice E. Erickson has received the following condolences.

You probably  don't know me but I was a friend  of Bernices, at Spring Valley Living.What a sweet lady.My husband is there and when she walked by his room,would always wave or say Hi. When I would leave in the car, always went slow or stopped at the forth window from the end, to wave and throw kisses. Thats still little old granny's room to me. So sorry about her passing.Special little lady!

My family would like all of you to know we are thinking of you all and that Aunt Bernice was such a beautiful person.  I will always remember the family reunions at Sixteen cemetery and the joy of seeing everyone.  Aunt Bernice always made me feel special and it tugs at my heart knowing I won’t see that big smile of hers, but she is looking down at us and watching over us.  I like to think mom and her are gossiping right now and there’s a big reunion taking place in heaven.  


Prayers for you all, take care!


Chad Nichols and family
