I was surprised to see Berdine's obituary in the Sumner Gazette. Berdine and Irene had many good times together.
I always enjoyed coming back home and visiting her after mom was gone. I also remember many great years when we were growing up in the neighborhood. We had some fun times! I wish I would have been able to come up for the
visitation, would love to have seen all of you. Berdine was a really special person, I always enjoyed her. My prayers & thoughts are with you during this time.
