Not sure what to say?

Over the years, I knew John and Bernice Meyer, but mostly from a distance of many miles.

Later, when Steve brought them home to Hayward about a year ago, I began to know them more. A lovely couple they were, and I feel privileged to have known them.

I see much, and, over a lifetime, I have seen much. But never ever have I seen the love, the care, and the gentleness that Steve gave to his parents so they would be comfortable and happy. Their care wasn't easy as they...

Many prayers for the family of Bernice and John Meyer. To lose a parent is terribly difficult, but to lose both within a month is heartbreaking. I attended the Wakes and Funeral Masses for both Bernice and John and have never experienced more beautifully planned out services. The readings, hymns, and particularly the music selections were a testament to the love of a son who wanted to honor his parents with the same gift of music they gave to him.

Dear John, Steve,Ken and Mark - We just learned today of Bernice's passing away. We have so many memories wrapped around our parish, our Benedictines and the strong relationship between Betty and your Mom/wife.
May she rest in peace and thank you all for being part of our lives.

First of all, let me offer you my condolences on the death of your wife and mother.

Secondly, I am W.J. Kennedy, M.D.'s daughter, Margaret Ann. I can't tell you how deepley I and the rest of my family were touched by the mention of our father in your wife's/mother's obituary. It is such a comfort to realize that he lives on in people's memories and through their children.

EULOGY for BERNICE MEYER
by Vilma Balbuena 11/14/13
I don't remember when or where I met Bernice 30 some years ago. What I remember is her friendly smile and the ease she made me comfortable. It was like second nature to her. I often dropped by their house at Larchmont St. to do many choir projects with Steven. Bernice made me feel like I'm part of the family. If you feel tired, she said, lie down on the couch and use the afghan to keep you warm. She'd invite me for lunch while...

Now that she has fallen asleep may she rest in peace.

Thinking of you Aunt Bernice. Love, your niece Kathleen

Love you Aunt Bernice. Your spirit lives on in the many people whose lives you touched. I know you are waving down at me from heaven. Your niece, Kathleen
