Memories Timeline


  1. My thoughts and continued prayers are with you, Katherine, and your entire family. I loved Ms. Bertha dearly and am honored to have known her and hope to see her again someday.

  2. Katherine,
    I’ve always had a special rememberance of Bertha. When we lived at Oakhurst Apts, she gave me a silver dogwood ring for my birthday, I don’t remember how old I was maybe eight or nine but it meant a whole lot to me.
    Your mother was a good lady.
