  1. My condolences to the family and all who loved Dr. Bernal. The seeming finality of death is what makes it especially difficult. But we can have confidence that God yearns to bring back to life the dead who are preserved in his memory. (Job 14:14,15) His Word, the Bible, gives us a wonderful hope of living in a paradise on earth and seeing the resurrection of our dead loved ones. (Luke 23:43; John 5:28,29) May this bring you some comfort during this difficult time.

  2. Our deepest sympathies go out to the families. May her soul Rest In Peace . God bless each heart that is affected by this lost. Stay strong .

  3. My sincere condolences to her husband, mom, brother and extended family. Iscela was a bright, articulate, intelligent and warm soul. I have such fond memories of her growing up. That, her professional success and her good nature is how I will remember her always. It is really sad to see her go. Affectionaly, Ana Diaz Davidson
