Your memory of Bernice has stirred pain of heart after losing her two years ago; but continue to be comforted by the promise from our Heavenly Father stated at Isaiah 26:19 “Your dead will rise ...Awake and shout joyfully you residents in the dust! ...the earth will let those powerless in death come to life.”

Remember__ “Your dead will rise ...Awake and shout joyfully you residents in the dust! ...the earth will let those powerless in death come to life.”(Isaiah 26:19) "He will swallow up death forever”(Isaiah 25:8). Exquisite joy it will be to see our love ones again!

I want to offer my condolences to the Rucker family. It is a painful thing to lose a love one in death and it pains our creator who has promise to bring our love one back to life. Hosea 13:14 says “From the power of the Grave I will redeem them; From death I will recover them” then "he will swallow up death forever …"(Isaiah 25:8). I hope these words give you comfort.

We are so sorry for your loss. Your family is in our prayers. We truly loved Bernice very much. She was a part of our family and she will be greatly missed. She loved Zack and Dustin as if they were her own grandchildren. She always smiled and had positive things to say. She was the best grandmother and loved all of her family dearly. Her cooking was amazing! I still make her meatballs just like she taught me. WE LOVE YOU BERNICE. REST IN PEACE! We will all see you again one day. Robert and Kim Serda
