Special thanks to CNS Hospice and all his friends and neighbors on 11th West.
Thank you so much for loving me,
you know I loved you too.
That's why it's hard to say good-bye
And end this life with you.
So hold me now, just one more time,
And let me hear you say,
Because you care so much for me,
You'll let me go today.
In lieu of flowers, plant a flower in springtime in remembrance of Bert.
At Bert's request, no services will be held. Burial will be at Mt. Calvary Cemetery under direction of Neil O'Donnell & Sons Mortuary.
"Good-bye dear friend".
