    Just thinking of Grandma today on this “Mother’s Day”. Someone signed her guestbook earlier with the comment that Grandma always, “said it like it was”. This made me laugh and think how true it was we never had to wonder what Grandma was thinking :) I wish I could have spent more time with her. My thoughts also go to my Mom. I know she wishes she could call and gab with her on the phone today. ps. I’ve started taking close-up photos of flowers this spring, I knew I inherited something from her.

    I am so lucky to have a multitude of great memories of Bert. She spent lots of time with Kathy and I listening to our teenage giggles and dramas. You could always count on her for good advise, even though at the time you didn’t think you needed it.
    I will pray for God to give her family the strenght to get through this difficult time.

    To the family of Bert Yeomans. Bert and I were friends for many years when she worked in the Belding plant. And as life goes we kinda lost track of one another, but she was a good friend and she will be missed. My sincere sympathy to the family. Thoughts and Prayers are with you at this sad time Glenda Wing

    Season, Becky and family, I am so sorry to hear about your loss. I am here Seas if you need to talk. I have many fond memories of Grandma Bert when we were little girls. Grandma Bert always walked downtown with us girls and would have many talks to us (Season and myself) about being good girls. She took numerous pictures of Season and I. We loved going and staying with Grandma Bert. She will be missed. I will keep you all in my thoughts and prayers. Love, Nikki
