Hello my name is Sister Lezlie White from the Manor Park Congregation of Jehovah’s Witnesses. I was very fond of Ms Bernice and I think of her often. She is truly in a better place awaiting a grand resurrection as stated at Acts 24:15! She was never afraid for Jehovah was always with her. We both believed in the secure hope of being reunited as mentioned at John 5:28&29! Always in my heart Sister Shy. 🌹
