My sincere sympathy and prayers are sent to you. Although your mother's smiles have gone and her hands you cannot touch, thank God for your precious memories.
Bertha and I were good friends growing up in high school (Freehold Regional), I spent the night at her house often, we had a lot of fun times, crying times & serious times. Our parents trusted our friendship and felt confident about it. I will carry within my heart our friendship forever.
