To the Crawley family. My sister Debbie and I would like to extend our heartfelt sympathy on the passing of Ms. Bernice. Our Mom, Gail (Chappelle) Turner and Ms. Bernice were friends for over 50 years. Our Dad was in the service and we traveled a lot. No matter where we were, Mom and Ms. Bernice kept in touch. Our Mom passed away in 2016. A couple of months before she passed we traveled to Greenville for a family reunion. Ms. Bernice was able to attend and she and Mom talked and laugh for hours. Their friendship was truly special. Please know our prayers are with you, May God bless and keep you. Wanda Thompson and Debbie Milton, Upper Marlboro, Maryland
