Bob Alton told me of Bert's death. Clay always thought a lot of Bert and we both enjoyed the times we got together at Guard functions. My prayer is that you and your family will feel God's presence and peace as you continue your lives without Bert. Sincerely, Rosie Kruckemeyer (Mason, Tx)

i'm so sorry i missed Bert's celebration of life service, but i just found out today. I still smile when i remember every now and then when we worked on getting his points straightened out for his retirement. He was a joyful man and made a difference to so many people. Praying for the repose of his soul and for all who are mourning his death. God Bless Us
