  2. Though your smile is gone forever
    And your hand we cannot touch
    We still have so many memories
    Of the one we loved so much
    Your memory is our keepsake
    With which we’ll never part
    God has you in his keeping
    We have you in our hearts

  3. I will really miss Aunty Bertha. She always welcomed us with open arms whenever we were in town. I remember staying with Aunty Bertha when I was a teenager and going to play bingo. It was a lot of fun. I am very glad that we were able to see Aunty Bertha this summer. It was a short visit but a special one for me. You will forever be in our hearts Aunty Bertha!

  7. We lost an amazing woman, who touched everyone’s life one way or another, she will be sadly missed by all of us.

    Mom, I was so blessed to have known you for 12.5yrs. When we first met and you welcomed my children and I into your family, I was so honored as you were a very loving, nurturing, caring and strong woman, a woman in time that I would be happy and feel very comfortable in calling Mom. The children always looked at you as a grandma and were proud to call you that. As much as I miss you, I’m also relieved you no longer have to suffer, I will though forever miss you, your smile, your hellos when we walk into the kitchen, your laughter and most of all your very warm heart. I will always love you to the ends of the earth and back. Rest in peace Mom, till we meet again.♥️♥️
