I have such happy memories of Aunt Bernice when I was a girl. She and Uncle Shelby were so welcoming when we visited. I remember how exciting it was to get the record you made and listen on our stereo. Sending my love and sympathies. My daughter Alissa Shuster and her family plan to bring my dad (Ted Morgan) to the service
