More people visit Berbie Browne's obituary than any other obit in our alumni website. As far as I know, she was somewhat well known at our high school, but certainly not as well known as a cheerleader, student body president, a football hero, or even a Pep Club officer.
I'm pretty sure most of these visits are from other people who didn't go to our school, and that usually means they remembered her after many years, from San Francisco, Los Angeles, New York or elsewhere.
That's a real testament to goodness, kindness, sweetness, and love for fellow human beings: qualities everyone agrees Berbie had in abundance. These are the qualities people treasure and remember. These are the qualities that count in life. And that's comforting to know in our present times. That never changes.

[If you're wondering, no, I never knew Berbie, or Jackson, really, and only know Severin slightly through email. I have quite a few Lancer friends who knew them all. I was a freshman when Berbie was a senior.
