    Farewell Bert.  You've always held a special please in my heart.  Since I was welcome to spend the night at your house, through all family fun and sadness.  As I grew you saw me as an adult woman and spoke to me as one, yet you still held that motherly vibe.  I love you and I believe your soul is resting in peace.
