I remember as a child, my mom had a song for every occasion, but the one that stuck out the most was Porgy and Bess's Summertime.  She sang this song in the good times, and she sang it in the bad; somehow, it always seemed to fit the mood and the occasion.
Now she is singing it with the angels.

Summertime, and the livin' is easy
Fish are jumpin' and the cotton is high
Oh, your daddy's rich and your ma is good-lookin'
So hush little baby, Don't you cry

One of these mornings you're gonna rise up singing
And you'll spread your wings and you'll take to the sky
But 'til that morning, there ain't nothin' can harm you
With Daddy and Mammy standin' by

Candle lit by  Al Wittich  on January 9th, 2016

My name is Al Wittich. I met Bernie in Oakland, CA in January 1960 at Port of call. I was in the Navy at that time and enjoyed my time with Bernie. Se was the most beautiful girl I had ever met. We corresponded in 1960-1962 while I was stationed in Japan. I'm  so sad to hear of her passing. Such a wonderful mother, grandmother and beautiful human being. Bernie's in a better place now, RIP.
