Dearest Sandra, Bert Jr., Becky & Derron, Steve and I were so shocked to hear of Bert's passing! Bert was a great boss to me when I began working at GSU in Jan 1979. He always kept us laughing and I guess it was a good thing that he had a sense of humor because he had lots of zany women working for him. Please know that we keep you in our hearts during the difficult days to come. May God Bless and Keep you all, Leah & Steve Gomez

Sandra..... I just talked to Darlene at the Western Div. Sideliners and she told me about Bert. To say I was shocked would be an understatement. We go back a long ways and I always treasured his friendship. With a very heavy heart you will be in my thoughts and prayers. God Bless!! By the way, I really do believe he was a Loving Husband.
