Aloha Auntie Bernadine! Your spirit lives on through the many stories told by your sisters, brother, neices and nephews. I'm thankful to have known you if only for a brief time. I wish I could be there in person with the family to celebrate your life and honor your passing. Bill is there for the two of us and I'm sure will give a eulogy fitting of your wonderful life. I wish your spirit peace.

To Auntie Butch, We miss you already; but I woke up this morning and heard your laugh and knew you were not just ok but doing great! You will always be my Godmother in my heart and I thank you for always being there for all of our family but especially for being Mom's dearest friend. Give a big hug to Dad & Karen for us and I'll give Angelo a goose from you. All our love always... Joy & Angelo To Letty, Alice, Dolores, Jerry & Family, We are truly sorry we could not be there to share in the celebration of Auntie Butch's life and also to comfort you at this very difficult time.

A new soul has entered heaven that is why the angels sing To escort them to the throne to bow before the King In heaven there's a party a great big celebration Welcoming a new resident as they gather in jubilation When the gates are opened the choirs of angels sing Joy has filled the heavens as they're presented to the King The memory of you will always be in our hearts. You will never be forgotten.
Peace of mind is a call away. We’re here when you need us most.

Bernie was a dear friend, we had so many good times in Brussels, when we were assigned to NATO. I loved her - will miss our phone talks, she is in a better place at peace.

I will miss talking to you and remembering when we were children. You were there to listen and were more than my cousin you were my friend. When we finished our conversation we always said I love you.

Dear family Bocian, When we got the news that Bernie passed away, it took a while before the true meaning of this message sunk in. We shall never forget what a good friend Bernie has been for us. To all her relatives, her brother Jerry, and her sisters Dolores, Collette and Alise we like to give our sincere and heartfelt condolences. Bernie will always stay in our thoughts as the sweetest person, we've ever met. We will remember her in our prayers. I would like to comfort you, if I could. I know that these words often seem so meaningless, but still try to be strong. Bernie is free from all sorrow and pain. There's nothing that disappears for good if one embraces the sweet memories. Noce more our sincere condolences to all of you. We will never forget your family, because you have all been so good to us. Mia , Henri and Josky from Belgium
