Karen and all you sweet Paradise Kids as I knew you. How I loved your dear Mom. We shared many concerns and laughs together over the years at Corpus Christi. I will always remember we were talking on the phone when the tv broke off to tell President Kennedy had been shot. We shared the grief of that horrific moment. I see her now laughing in heaven with your Dad and all she loved. Stir up your fond memories and keep them close. I send much love from all of my family. Marilyn Antrobus

Straight to Heaven. I have no doubt. One of the most genuine, sweetest souls I have known, in all my life. Deepest condolences to the entire Paradise family - our treasured neighbors and classmates, once upon a time. We always looked forward to the Christmas photo cards, every year and see who could name every one of you correctly :) Since the moment I heard your Mom had passed, you have been in my thoughts and prayers. Don't fight the tears, but embrace them. 30 years out, they still hit me on occasion. Our loved ones are worth every drop of remembrance. She was a good one. Hold tight the sweet memories, let go of the unpleasant. May you find comfort in your circle of family and friends in these very critical days, months...years. God bless you, all. She loved you so.

Keith, Mark and Mike and the whole family: Your loss is Heaven's gain and praying that God will comfort each of you. What a LADY she was, I never forgot her and the small fragments of her life as told to me by my mom, which were told to her, by your mom. May her legacy remain always !

We are very saddened to hear of Grandma Bernice's passing. She touched so many of our lives. May we hold her in our hearts as she has gone on to live with the Father until the time comes for us to join her in heaven. Praying for God's comforting
