Madre pa' todos
Berta's departure from this world is felt and mourned by all her children, grandchildren, and all the people she adopted (as extended children) into her heart. Bertha demonstrated to me the art of unconditional love. She was a friend to all and found pleasure in the simple things. Her childlike curiosity for new ideas, people, and places continues to inspire me to be a better person. When I think of Bertha, my heart warms. I think of a strong woman who always had a smile, a good laugh or a taquito ready. Her life, her spirit and love,continues to inspire me. I carry that flame (her spirit) in my heart. And I hope to, one day, be half the woman she was. It was an honor to have known her and have been touched by her life.Thank you Irene for introducing me to your mama.
