    Sorry to hear of Bernie's passing. We enjoyed the many years of playing tennis with her while she was in Mt. Pleasant. All the members of the women's tennis group send their best wishes and condolences to the family.

    So very sorry to hear of Bernie's passing. I was one of her Mt Pleasant tennis friends. We all enjoyed her so much, on and off the court!
