Condolence: To Howard & Alice & Howard's siblings & their families..........It is with sadness that I learned of Bertha's passing after what seems to be only a short time since I learned of her diagnosis! Unfortunately because I'm presently vacationing in Florida, I will not be able to join the family vigil for Bertha. My memories of Bertha are meeting her yearly at Howard's & Alice's home for special family celebrations...especially at Christmas time. She was easy to remember because of her friendliness & appreciation for people....especially for those who were connected to her native home town of Fortune! To all the family may you find comfort in your beautiful memories as you mourn the loss of your love one.
