    I got to know Bernadette from visiting my mom at Stonebridge. She sat with my mom in the dining room. I quickly knew she was a sweet & friendly lady. I enjoyed talking with her at lunch or dinner time & would oftentimes see her in the hallway or coming out of her room. Praying for the family during this difficult time.

    Prayers for the family. I got to know Berndette from visiting my grandma Faye Bell at Stonebridge. They always sat together at the dining room. She was a precious, funny, good hearted woman. Many times I would have dinner with her and my grandma Faye and they would complain about the food and talk about family. Her smile and laugh was contagious!! I’m very glad I got to know her. ❤
