My sympathy to all the family of Bertha,
Yes, she was sweet and charming that I recognized right away tho strangers we were.
Bertha took a chance on me during a very difficult time back in 1992. She allowed me to rent her house with the rent applying and the option to buy it IF and WHEN I could manage it. I just feel the need to have you know what that meant to me. She was somewhat unsettled she said, but I knew when she met and married Charlie she was truly happy and content. God Bless you all, may you have many pleasant memories.
So sincerely, Bonnie Long
