    For around 17 years Bernice has been an amazing wealth of information and support for our family. Her love, prayers and wisdom were invaluable to us, especially during challenging times.
    As a tribute to Bernice I would like to quote the following from the Bible and a story which relates to it.
    1st Peter 1:3-5
    “Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, which according to his abundant mercy has begotten us again to a lively hope by the resurrection of Jesus Christ from the dead, To an inheritance incorruptible, and undefiled, and that fades not away, reserved in heaven for you, Who are kept by the power of God through faith to salvation ready to be revealed in the last time.”
    The Beloved Son
    “A true story is told of a millionaire who had a portrait of his beloved son painted before the son went to war. He was tragically killed in battle, and shortly afterward, the heartbroken millionaire died. His will stated that all his riches were to be auctioned, specifying that the painting must sell first.
    Many showed up at the auction, where a mass of the rich man’s wealth was displayed. When the painting was held up for sale, there were no bids made. It was an unknown painting by an unknown painter of the rich man’s uncelebrated son, so sadly, there was little interest.
    After a few moments, a butler who worked for the man remembered how much the millionaire loved his son, decided to bid for it, and purchased the portrait for a very low price. Suddenly, to everyone’s surprise the auctioneer brought down his gavel and declared the auction closed. The rich man’s will had secretly specified that the person who cared enough to purchase the painting of his beloved son was also to be given all the riches of his will.
    This is precisely what God has done through the gospel. He who accepts the beloved Son of God also receives all the riches of His will the gift of eternal life and pleasures for evermore. They become joint heirs with the Son (Romans 8:16,17).”

    We miss Bernice. However much this parting hurts, we are so grateful to have had her in our lives and we are also grateful that she is now in the safe keeping of the Lord she loved.

    This hope is still available to all who will receive it:

    Marion Craig
