Bob and family-
Bernadette was one of my longest known patients in my practice. I enjoyed her life and spirit. Her bravery and courage taught us all to fight the good fight. Our office in Douglas will always remember her zest to live. We are all sorry for your loss.

Belated condolences to her friends and family. I knew Bernadette from the Whitinsville Fair. I was always impressed by her positive attitude and the way she always seemed to speak to you like you were one of her kids. I always smile when I think of her. The world is a little less friendly without her. God bless.
