Thank you for signing Bernice "Ciss" Gallahan's Guestbook
Ciss, you were one of the best. It was an honor to have known you and can call you our friend. We had so much fun helping you cook those dinners at the Lodge. You always had the biggest smile and the biggest heart. You will be missed but I know you are singing up there in heaven.

To Mark, Tony, and the rest of the family, so sorry to hear about the passing of Ciss. She was a very sweet lady with an amazing voice. Rest well in knowing that she and Marvin are finally together again, and I'm sure she's already found a microphone to keep the folks entertained with that sweet voice. Know that you're all in my thoughts and prayers.

Mark, Tony & Family,
So sorry to hear about your Mom's passing. We did get to see her when she was in the hospital. Ciss was a sweet lady, fun person to be around and a great singer. We have so many memories at the Moose with her and the family. May your hearts be filled with warm thoughts and cherish treasured moments of your dearly departed.
Praying that God's healing touch will comfort, support and strengthen you now and in the days ahead. Sending Love & Prayers. With Deepest & Heartfelt Sympathy,
Rocky, Donna, Collin, Curtis & Family

Mark and Tony,
Mom and I are so sorry to hear about Ciss. We remember the many Saturday nights that "the grownups" would play cards for hours and us "kids" would entertain ourselves. I remember Ciss laughing while they played cards. I can hear it in my mind right now. I remember the vacation our families took to Pennsylvania when we were kids. We have lots of great memories of Ciss. The photo of her on this tribute is how I'll always remember her. Our sympathy to you both and the rest of the family.
