Very special lady thanks for the many years of friendship

I’m so sorry for your loss! She was a wonderful lady that I will always remember with deep affection! She was my first piano teacher. The Metz family is one of the best anywhere! Don and family I grieve with you! Prayers for all of you!

Thinking of family at this time. It was so nice to have known Berna Deane. I appreciate their open home and kindness to us in the field. It’s so wonderful that she lived first for the Lord and so she is ever with the Lord.

Don and family, I was saddened to hear about Berna Deane's passing. I remember many years ago sitting at your house on Metz Lane on Christmas Eve. I remember your home feeling full of love and Berna Deane's hospitality is something I still remember as a young boy. I remember always getting a smile on my face when I heard her laugh, it was contagious. I'm sorry for your loss. Heaven gained a beautiful angel. Todd Eldridge - Ray's son in Cheyenne, WY

She made the world a better place. Her tools included listening, kindness and charity towards all. May she rest in peace.
