In the post, the two are beaming, and they look ageless. Bern, who is wearing a stunning black dress, wrapped her hand around Sheryl's blue-clothed shoulders as they both smiled for the camera and Stanis' over 82,000 followers.

The memoir of her mother's Alzheimer's journey and how the family dealt with her father's murder was, however, what provided a more open look into the [BernNadette Stanis'] life.

 

Her fans were excited about the picture as they populated the comment section with compliments for the two actresses.

Some of the adjectives used to describe the duo include beautiful, fabulous, and of course, unsurprisingly, one fan called them melanin queens.

Last year, on the daily talk show, "Sister Circle," Bern was described as a trailblazer for being her iconic role in "Good Times," which was the first sitcom to feature a black family that challenged the stereotypes imposed on people of color.

Mostly remembered as playing the feisty teenage daughter, Thelma Evans, on the hit series in the late 70s and early 80s, according to Winston-Salem Journal, the now 66-year-old has since the series ended, landed acting roles on stage, films and television productions.

She has also established herself as an author with books on relationships, financial advice, a biography of her mother's struggle with Alzheimer's disease, and more.

In her chat with Winston-Salem Journal, she revealed that her first book was "Situations 101 – Relationships, the Good, the Bad, the Ugly," and she was encouraged to write a second book after getting invited to different seminars and book signings.

The second book was called "For Men Only," a book of poetry for men, which is a tribute to the men who were her pillar of support. Afterward, she published a sequel to "Situations 101 – Relationships" titled "Situations 101 – Finances." 

According to Black Doctor, the memoir of her mother's Alzheimer's journey and how the family dealt with her father's murder was, however, what provided a more open look into the author's life.

In the book "The Last Night: A Caregiver's Journey," she paid tribute to her parents and siblings, highlighting how they all contributed to her success. 

Sun-sentinel, in 2015 shared that to further establish her voice for Alzheimer's, BernNadette Stanis founded a nonprofit called Remembering The Good Times Foundation.

The foundation aims to promote education and awareness for the caregivers and families of people suffering from dementia-related diseases.
