Forever & Always in Our Hearts

This memorial website was created in memory of our loved one, Preston Bertrand, a dedicated husband, father, grandfather, son, brother and friend who passed away on September 25, 2008. Although he left us too soon, he affected many and we will remember him forever.

This site is a work in progress, I wanted to share this with all of you who share the love we had and still have for him.  

Our memories are healing and if you have any pictures, stories or words to share with us on this site, we would appreciate that gift in honoring him.
