Nancy.. Thank you for sharing your mom with us and your wonderful Pastor with us.. what a tribute to how many lives she touched and blessing to those of us who love Bert so much to hear your Pastor share his uplifting words about your mom and also to share the precious word of God and the reassurance this is just a temporary seperation. He was a blessing and your mom would be so proud to hear the kind words and memories he shared with us all. It was an honor to share this time of celebration of Ms Berts home going with a true man of God. Your mom would be so pleased. Thank you again .. love and prayers. .

James, Pat, Gail, Debbie, Cathy and Faimilies.. first.. THANK YOU for sharing your precious Mom with us! Bert was more than a church member, she was a second Mom.(.she always called us her youngans.. ) a mentor, inspiration and a true friend. She shared her wisdom and her heart with us and we are so blessed to have been a part of her life and "adopted" family. As the days go by and the hard moments creep up.. please remember this is temporary.. I can't say Im sorry for your loss.. when you lose someone you don't know where they are.. we all know exactly where she is.. she isn't lost.. she just beat us home (she would be picking on us all that she "beat" us there ) Bert will be missed.. real fast a funny memory.. last time she was able to be at church she was talking to Cameron and when we got home for the next few days I heard him saying " Dog Gone" ... he had learned it from ur mom. We all even Nana Pat gets a dog gone every once In a while from him. I could spend all day sharing memories of Bert.. Ill leave it with.. we lover her dearly.. she will ALWAYS have a place in our hearts and we will see her again soon! Wait near the gate Ms Bert.. we will be along soon! Love and Prayers..

We know you are heartbroken over Aunt Bert's passing. You were all so kind to come to "Uncle Murphy's" viewing and if I was nearby, I'd come. She was the rock of the family. Blessings to all in this Easter season. Randy Coble and family - Judy, Sara and Carol
