The world has lost a wonderful personality. I will always remember Aunt Bert as a confident strong careing woman and although I wasn't able to spend a great deal of time with her she had a positive influence on my life. Thoughts and prayers to all.

Trissi and Mike, I was saddened when I heard the news of your mother. Aunt Bert was always kind, cheerful and such a beautiful lady! When I was young she would drive to Gramda Krumm's farm home and fix my hair for church the next day. She made me feel like a princess, with BIG hair. Sending you two good thoughts! She was very proud of the two of you and your families.

Trissi & Mike~your mom was an awesome lady! I remember when my mom passed, she was the first one to come over & had such kind words for us. I still remember also what she told us about God picking flowers for his garden & mom was picked for a special place in it. Now your mom has her special place there. My deepest sympathies to you & your families.
