I'm so sorry to hear of Mrs. Berry passing.  What a sweet lady.  We were hoping she and the family would come back to the lake this summer to see "her" place.

We will always remember you as one of the kindest ladies we have ever met. You were the definition of lady. You always made our family feel welcome and touched my heart with your smile. Our neighborhood will be a little less bright without knowing you're nearby. Be blessed in Heaven and reap your rewards, for they will be many.
