  1. To the family of Edith Bernstein,I am so sorry for your loss. Having worked for Safeway in Salida for 34 years, I knew Edith for many of those years. She was a wonderful and funny lady who would never fail to speak her mind. She always had a joke or a little wisdom to share with me. She was usually the bright spot in my day. I will miss her very much. My thoughts and prayers are with all of you.

  2. Tom, Tim and your families; You know how much Edith meant to all of us. She was one feisty, wonderful neighbor for 41 years. How we will miss her. Our love to all of you.

  3. There can never be words that can effectively describe how Edith and her family impacted my life from allowing me the joy of caring for her to lifting me up in their hearts and prayers.
