With profound sadness…



It is with a very heavy heart that we share with you that Bernadette–our lifelong friend and team member–passed into God’s arms yesterday morning (Saturday Feb. 20) after a years-long battle with cancer.  Her indomitable spirit and courage will continue to inspire us throughout our life times.

Please keep her and her family in your thoughts and prayers.

May Bernadette be at peace.

May her family find comfort.

Eternal blessings.
