"BIRDY, WE JUST GOT TO ROUNDUP LAST WEEK, JULY 11, AND FOUND OUT THAT YOU HAD PASSED AWAY. WHAT A BLOW TO MY HUSBAND AND I! THEN I LOOK ON THIS MEMORIAL AND SEE OUR PICTURE WITH YOU AT ROUNDUP. I AM THE ONE IN THE YELLOW SWEATER WITH YOU AND MY HUSBAND DAVE. WHAT A SHOCK. WELL, YOU HAVE NOT BEEN FORGOTTEN. YOU WILL ALWAYS BE IN OUR HEARTS. MY HUSBAND ALWAYS SAID THAT HE WAS GONNA RUN AWAY WITH YOU...AS A JOKE...AND GO ON A HONEYMOON. WE WOULD ALL THREE CRACK UP AT THIS..AND YOU WOULD LAUGH YOUR HEAD OFF AT HIM. YOU AND YOUR JOKES WERE WONDERFUL. DAVE AND I WILL LOVE YOU ALWAYS. KAREN HUMPHREY CONDRA"
"Always watching you dance was an inspiration. Though I didnt know you personally I felt as though I did from seeing you all the time at RoundUp. You were amazing. I wish I knew all the dances you did and I hope to dance as long as you did. Truly beautiful. May you RIP and forever keep dancing up above. All my prayers to you and your family."
"Berta...There will never be a time when spinning around the dance floor that you will not cross my mind .. I loved seeing you smile, sharing my birthday with you as well as hearing you call me the Dancing Angel .. You are truly missed we definitely have an angel with us at the Roundup"
""Berta we all miss you at Fern Forest and your smiling face. You are missed but not forgotten God Bless! The Shade Tree Pickers"
"Berta - I look to the left - every night - you were always there - smiling - dancing - I miss you - you are not forgotten. I know you are dancing - and smiling still - always and forever. You have been an inspiration to all of us - we all wanted to grow up and be just like Berta....."
"Berta, you were truly an inspiration dancing. You knew more dances than I could ever dream of knowing. I always said to myself that I pray to dance as long as you have! God Bless! You will always be missed!"
"Aunt Berta...loving and caring. Easy to talk to, easy to love and easy to be loved by."
"The best sister-in-law in the world!!"
"Berta, I will always remember your happy smile. Keep dancing in heaven sweet lady."
"Berta, You were a true inspiration to all the girls, and a wonderful role model. Rest in Peace. Dance Like nobody's watching. I miss you."
"Bert, just letting you know that you are not forgotten. You seat is empty but your spirit is there. I carry a picture of you in my dance bag and when anyone ask I can whip it out and show them your smiling face. You gave us all inspiration to dance on and live long! The "blondes" say hi!"
"Berta you were always on the dance floor and danced the night away I hope you continue to line dance up in heaven show everyone your amazing dance moves so they see what you do best we miss you!!!!"
