To my friend of 50 years to be exact we did so many things together and we got in trouble together but we always manage to get out of it every time I will feel sad I will give my sister a call and she will always find a way to make me laugh or feel much better so to you my friend and queen sleep well.

Serberthia wasn't only my co worker, But she was also my Best Friend. I could talk to her about anything, she would always give me advice and was very supportive. Everytime we talked on the phone she would always say, "I Love You Sis." I will cherish all of the memories and good times that we had. To her Family, you have my deepest condolences and she will be missed dearly.
