I'm so sorry to hear of Bert's passing. I will always remember how supportive and helpful he and Linda were when my parents were ill and after my dad's passing. He lived his faith. May the grace of God fill you all with peace and comfort in this time.

I have known Bert for years and have enjoy both his and his wife's company while they visited my parents. He was an enjoyable gentleman with a great sense of humour and a gentle spirit.

My condolences to all the family for their loss.

When Bethel was building the newest addition, Bert and a few others would get together every other week to pray. I would come flying in with a lot of things happening and he would just speak and my blood pressure would lower significantly! I always loved his wit and wisdom. Shirley Feddema
