  1. Dear Family of Miss Bertha,
    I just adored her so much & always loved talking w/her when she came in monthly to pay her insurance. My husband was a dialysis patient & going thru it @ the time she was so I so understood and worried about her after her treatments. She would always ask about him…there wasnt a sweeter lady that lived! Please know you have my prayers and help in any way possible.
