God’s light shone through Auntie Berta’s life in many ways I’m certain, but for me it was in her grace and kindness. She seemed to have endless quantities of both, and more importantly, she generously extended not only grace and kindness but also love to me. I am truly blessed to know and love her.
Auntie Berta will always be in my heart and her example of using God’s gifts to benefit others is a trait that I will strive to follow.
