    My thoughts and prayers to Bernice's family. I have known her so long I feel as though she was part of our family. My Dad had a boat at the dock behind Riverview back in the 60's and met Bernice then. She was very special to our family. My heart was broke for your family and mine when I received the message she had passed. I'm so glad that my children got to know her. Love from my family.

    God bless Ms Bernice! She has been a wonderful friend to me for many years! Her service to the community for Riverview Cafe and the many Shrimp Festivals we have had! She and Angela came to support the re-opening of TAGALLERY in 2019. Jesus be with her now. God has a special Angel now.
