    Bertha was one of the sweetest people I've ever had the pleasure of knowing. She and Price were my parents best friends while they lived in Belton and we all have such sweet memories with them. I am so sorry for the loss of your precious mother. Love and prayers from the Cox family.

    My most recent memory of Aunt Bertha was the time we spent laughing and talking at a baby shower just a few years ago. She beat us all in the memory-matching game! I always enjoyed seeing and spending time with Aunt Bertha and Uncle Price. They raised three incredible sons who, in turn, became loving and caring husbands and fathers. Their legacy was one of family, love, and kindness. May you all find peace and comfort in the memories you share.
