I lost my best friend.She was both a sister and a mother to me. For almost 30 years I have enjoyed her company,gone on trips, shopped, had lunches, dinners, talked endlessly about poodles and mourned our losses.
I loved her so much and miss her every day.
Bertha and I became close friends. We had many great times together,and a lot of fun.She was funny,and a loyal friend.

Mom loved to help people; one could say that helping others was her hobby. She surely understood the meaning of "love thy neighbor". In turn, others loved her back. She was loved by many. A neighbor of mine said, "I will always remember Bertha for the joy, love and help that she gave to others. She once told me that she could take care of me if I needed her." (Catherine Alton)
Bertha's nephew whom we haven't seen for years said, "Knowing she wanted me notified makes me feel ten feet tall. Of all the people I've known Bertha easily ranks in the top ten."
It was a pleasure to know Bertha. Last June we spent a happy day together in Dallas. We shopped at the bustling Farmers' Market, ate delicious burger baskets on the patio at Jake's and hunted for bargains in the Khols shoe department. Bertha had a few years on the rest of us, but she matched us step for step and laugh for laugh. It was a very special day for me.
