Bertha was a real sweetheart. I was fortunate to know her thru her brother Earl Richard's. Bertha was a social butterfly. She loved everyone, and I think the feeling was mutual. Rest in peace Bertha

A long time ago, she was my Sunday school teacher at Pleasant Valley Baptist Church. She was the sweetest. I haven't stayed in contact, but seen both Mr and Mrs Wiles in the store that I work at. I loved that they were still so sweet. I am not sure that they remembered me but they were sweet anyways. She also had a beautiful voice. Used to sing hymnals all the time. Sorry for your loss and the world has lost a true legacy in my eyes.
