I am so sorry for your loss. Bertie was a great friend to my Dad Neal Crofts at Faith Church. My Dad also passed away Sunday at St Vincent. May peace be with your family.

Dear Cheryl and Mickey, I was so saddened to get the news of your sweet mother's passing in my paper this morning. She always had a smile on her face and she sure did not look her age! I know you are thankful God gave her a long life. She enjoyed you all so much sharing your talents with the people at Woodmont. You will be in my thoughts and prayers in the coming days! May God be with you all. Love, Mary J. Shelton
