I have such wonderful memories of Berrietta. I knew her from Little Brick Church and New Covenant Church and singing in the choir. Both of our families were faithful church members. Our kids grew up together in church. She was one of the most beautiful and sweetest ladies I have ever known. She also had a beautiful voice. I loved being in the choir with her. She and Everett were dear friends for many years. They would always stop and talk to me at St. Mary’s Hospital on trips to the doctor. Where I was a volunteer. My thoughts and prayers are with Eric and Karl and your families .

Berrietta Thomas is one of the sweetest and most precious women that my wife, Sara, and I have ever known. We got to know her well through her late husband, Everett, who was a great friend and customer of mine in the trucking(freight) business. They were both just wonderful, loving people and who also were wonderful Christians. May God Bless them both and they are now back together again. Heaven is a better place with them there!
Blessings to all the family in their loss of Berrietta.

It was a pleasure to work and get to know Berietta during her years at TIS Insurance Services, Inc. She was so nice, always happy, and eager to help. I have such fond memories of "Aunt B". She will be missed. So sorry for your loss.

We went to church and participated in Bible study with Berrietta for many years when we were members of New Covenant. She was a wonderful lady. Our condolences to your family.

Berrrietta and I were good friends for over 50 years. We attended church together, our
families went on vacation together, and we visited in each
others homes. She will be greatly missed by my family. She was a true friend and she greatly blessed my life.
