Russell and family, I am so sorry for your loss. Bernice was a jewel. Wednesdays were special because Russell and Bernice would stop by the old Courthouse in Jonesborough and we all got the chance to get the great fruits and vegetables.And Bernice would always give everyone a good laugh. She loved picking on Russell.My thoughts and prayers are with you and your family at this difficult time.
