Bertha, and her precious family have meant a lot to our family for many years.
Her sons and daughter are longtime BSU friends of mine and Jerry. What wonderful children you raised. And even your grandsons, Casey and Kirk were friends of our girls. We know you will each miss your wonderful mother and grandmother. May God bless you with wonderful memories in the coming days.
