Condolences to Darcy, Mitchell, Sharon, and Lorraine .
My two sisters, Elaine and Lynda, and I visited Aunt Bertha last year in May. Aunt Bertha was there for us when our sister Gladys passed away last February. Aunt Bertha and Gladys would call each other regularly. I will have many fond memories of Aunt Bertha.
Now she is one of our guardian angels.

My condolences to the family of auntie Bertha. She gave me comforting words on the phone when her brother Frank past. I really needed it. We would talk on the phone , she and Olive her beloved sister in law would chat for what seemed like hours. Then when Olive past away , once again auntie Bertha was my phone comfort with words of compassion and wisdom. Gifts of beautiful flower bouquet were always a heartwarming surprise. Cards for every occasion without fail. Mail gifts of jewelry that she also loved to wear were among the packages that came.
Even though she lived miles away she kept contact through mail and telephone.
Heaven has gained another angel. The miles apart no longer exist with family gone ahead. Flowers of heaven bloom forever .
Thank you Auntie Bertha for your kind ❤️
