    I am extremely sorry for your loss. I am a very close friend of your sister Bernice. I was the caregiver for her late husband Martin(fyi the correct spelling should be listed as Kaslavage)May you find peace at this time of sorrow, and may you now try and mend all past family relations that may have been fractured.
