We were so saddened to hear of Bertha's passing she was a wonderful wonderful woman. Thirty-two years ago Bertha babysat my 2 and 3 year olds - she came so highly regarded and afforded me the peace of mind in knowing my children were being so well cared for. We all would look so forward to seeing her Holiday decorating. Rest In Peace Bertha and Thank You for everything.


Joe and family, so sad to read about the passing of your Mom. May the angels scoop her up in their loving arms and take her to where there is peace and where all her loved ones who died before her are waiting to be reunited with her. May all loved ones left behind have peace until someday you are together again.
