Since we were unable to be there in person, we were so fortunate to be able to watch and listen to the outstanding eulogies given by Cindy, Neil and the grandchildren about their exceptional and adoring Nanny. Knowing her for more than 50 years, she always impressed me with her grace, style, sense of humor and intellect. It’s evident that her energy , spirit, joy of life have touched the lives of so many people. We remember many family simchas we attended together and see the pride and joy Bernice had for all of you. Since she has left a legacy of love and devotion, her traits will continue to live on in you and your beautiful family. Elaine, know that your mother appreciated the special bond you had with each other as well as the care and devotion that you, Eric, your children and grandchildren showed her throughout her life. You are the daughter that any mother would wish for. You, Eric, a devoted husband and son-in-law, your mother and father, inspired and instilled a sense of family closeness that has been a wonderful roll model for your children and grandchildren. May your cherished and loving memories of her be a source of comfort and strength to all of you during this difficult time. Love from New York, Gloria, Frank and families (Berkowitz, Melamed and Pearlman)

Paula and Alan Horn-Kaplan - 19 days ago

Dear Elaine and Family, Seeing the picture of your beloved mother was like an instant flashback to 50 years or so ago when our mothers were best of friends. I used to tell your mother that she was not just the closest friend of my mother’s, but she was as well very special to me. When I lived at home and your mother would phone, if my mother was not at home, your mother and I would have long and enjoyable conversations. I remember like it was yesterday how our mothers would celebrate their birthdays , which were close to each other, every year by going to a nice restaurant. I will always remember your mother’s big smile, warmth, and kindness, even more so after my father passed away. The bond between you and your mother was beautiful and you will carry this feeling within you forever. With love, Paula and Alan

Margo Small - 19 days ago

Dear Elaine , Eric and the whole family, I'm so sorry to hear of Bernice's passing . She was the last one of that generation and a matriarch who will surely be missed. During the times we spoke ,whether over the phone or in person , she was always warm ,loving and kind toward me. I was always so happy that my father and her ,as double first cousins, remained close friends for 95 years and that she always seemed to be “on the ball”. May your great memories of her carry you forward during this difficult time.
