All child hood memories when I think of Bertha. There's not a day where I wouldn't see her outside watering her garden. Especially those yellow tulips 🌷 in front of her house. I remember as a kid our neighbor Andrea and I took a tulip from her garden and after that it took a while to go back outside again, afraid of getting in trouble. Good old times. Bertha will be miss but always remembered. It's never a goodbye but a see you later. God's called her home.

When we lived in South Oakcliff, it was the house on the corner. For some reason our doors were always open, probably because we had no AC and the flies wouldn't dare come in because we had very little food and we were very hungry kids. But with very little my mom would make it smell so good and have enough for everyone. This one time a neighbor, a 3 year old black kid, walked through the door and said "Momma". We were about to eat. Mom looked at him and probably thought since you're my kid seat down and eat. And also two other good friends of mine, Demond Green and Johnny Walker, would always show up around dinner time saying what we called her "Ama" and she would seat them down and feed them. She had very little but she gave a lot. With her food and her example she made our neighborhood and friends feel more like family. Because of her, my friends are also my brothers.

I've known Bertha most of life. I remember the day the Garcias moved into their house and i became friends with her son Adam. Adam asked me to stay the night and Bertha tells Adam, pero ni lo conoses. She still let me stay the night because she was always kind and loving. I remember always falling asleep on her couch after school and she would lower the tv and cover me with a blanket then wake me up for dinner that she always made for her husband and 20 kids lol. She was always tough and kept her yard best on the block and still is best on the block. I also remember her protecting her baby Alfredo, dont ever drink his diet drinks :). Best memory of all is her giving me recognition for cutting the yard and would always tease Adam for never doing it. I will miss Bertha, the neighborhood will not be the same without her, but my memories of her will always be there.

My mom taught me to keep a clean house. She taught me never to give up, to work hard and give 100 percent in all I do. She taught me how to make tamales, menudo and many other things. In short, she taught me how to be a man. Now when I cook I will remember how her house smelled so good and delicious.

My mom always had her arms and doors to her home open to everybody. She was known and loved by so many people. She has 7 kids, 16 grand kids, and 2 great grand kids. She was an amazing cook. She loved her family so much. She never learned how to drive yet she managed to always be there for us for childbirths, graduations, weddings, illnesses, surgeries, vacations, and more. She always took care of everything till the end. She was a very strong woman until cancer took her from us. I thank God that she is no longer suffering. I see her when I look at myself in the mirror. I will always love you Mother Bear!
