Most of my memories of Aunt Bert are from when we lived in MD when I was in high school. Lots of fun memories of playing in the swimming pool and Fourth of July barbeques. Aunt Bert was always so much fun and had a sparkly personality-she always made me feel loved and happy to be with her.

We are certainly saddened with the news of Aunt Bert. She lived a long and fulfilled life and will be missed but not forgotten. My family and I have many fond memories. Our thoughts and prayers go out to all.
