My deepest sympathy to the family. I had the honor of having Ms. Bertha as my Sunday School teacher and babysitter as a child and then the pleasure of having her as one of our clients at the Senior Center. We will miss seeing her when delivering meals. She was such a sweet lady. Mary Brown and Family

I delivered Meals on Wheels to Mrs. Lundy every other Tuesday. I really enjoyed seeing her and getting to talk to her. She always had a positive attitude. She seemed to have been doing so well this summer following her fire. I'd see her sitting on her porch with her sister from Florida. It really saddened me to hear of her passing. This morning as we delivered to the man across the street I was thinking of Mrs. Lundy. She was a special lady. I will miss her.

I am so sorry for your loss. Please know that you are never alone. You can find much comfort in the Holy Scriptures which assures us at Psalms 34:18 that God is near to those broken at heart and crushed in spirit. Please accept my deepest sympathies.
