Bernice, Heather, Stu and Colton, So sorry to hear of Bert's passing. Times like these bring great reflection of happier times. Bert was a respected businessman, and a wonderful manager to learn from. He had a quick wit that could come out of nowhere, and a gentle reassurance that made learning from him so easy. I'm so sorry I won't be able to attend this week, but be assured my thoughts are with you. Treasure the great times, remember the love, it's not the weight on your shoulders but a gentle shove from above. Take Care Craig, Shannon, Caden & Sydney Martin
