Bertha became a mother to me when we lived at the Wall Place in Wake Forest. She took me with her wherever she went and I tagged along proudly. One time Ginny Carol was getting her picture made and Bertha dressed me up as one of hers and I got my picture made as well. I have good memories of her in my life and most of all I knew I was loved by her.
