Cindy and Family,
I have such fond memories of your mom from Troop 737. Her positive spirit and commitment to her work, family, church, community and especially us girl scouts was a blessing to me- and a valuable lesson in my youth. My thoughts and prayers go out to all of you.

The Bertelsen family stands out in my childhood memories spent at Grace Lutheran. Mrs Bertelsen had a gift waiting right after I was born and that meant so much to my mother. I can still hear Mrs Bertelsen’s laughter while she gave her time to the church activities. You are all in my thoughts.

Mr. Bertelsen and family, I am so saddened by your lose. Roberta was a wonderful, warm, kind, and giving lady who I loved very much. I had fun and learned a lot in working with her. I pray that God may give you strength! Love and prayers to all
