Debbie and family,
We are so very sorry to hear of your beloved Mother passing. I can remember how giving she was of her time when she was our scout leader. Our sympathy goes out to you all.

To the family...So sorry to see your mother's passing. I worked with "Bertie" for several years, back "in the day" at the Holiday Inn, where we both were in the Housekeeping Dept. She and I had a lot of laughs together and when I remember those days, your mother's memories always make me laugh and smile. She was a great lady. My prayers to you and your family. Jill Higgins
