Dear David and all of Bertha's family, We want you to know how much we loved Bertha. She was a wonderful lady and I always looked forward to getting my "Bertha hug" each Sunday morning. She's a saint that will be missed. She always had a smile and we know now that she is with Jesus. We look forward to a reunion someday with her and many family members who have gone on to Heaven. We pray for comfort for the family during these very difficult times, and peace. God bless all of you.

Dear Nancy, David & families, Our deepest sympathy to all of you. We will always cherish our memories of "Tom" as we always called her. She never saw a stranger and always greeted all of us with a hug and a kiss. It is always so hard to give up your Mama although you know she is in a much better place. Mama (Ila) will be gone 4 years this July and it seems like it was only yesterday. Cherish your memories. Again our condolences.
