Brenda, Eric and Karen, we hope that your Mom's service went well and that it was good to connect with people whose lives have been touched by hers. I deeply regret that we were unable to be there and that we don't really know each other. That's a sad thing that so often happens in families - no reason for it but that lives wander off in many different directions. I hope that you have some memories of the gatherings we once had as kids. I do. Cyndie

I remember Aunt Bernice as a truly gracious lady. Her smile was genuine. Her love for all came through her kind words. She always looked beautiful and was a woman of faith in God and sincere prayer for others. Aunt Bernice and my mother Edith K. Torley were friends from the beginning to the end - and their new beginning together in heaven. May God answer all of her prayers for her family. With love from Deborah and Werner.

I am so sorry for your loss. Bernice was a sweet soul who was always welcoming and gracious. Her stories of childhood were fascinating and her sense of humour was delightful! She was strong in faith and loved her family dearly. I am very fortunate to have met this wonderful lady and I cherish the memories of our visits together .

Bernice and we were special friends. We traveled together on various trips. She wrote a book of poems regarding the fun we had. She sent Perley many cards and letters expressing her love. We loved her very much. She loved Jesus as we do. We will meet her later. Love, Perley and Marlene. A Gift has been sent to Gideon Bibles in her honor.
