In Loving Memory of "Berta"
She was a simple small town, brown eyed girl. She loved, lived, died and was buried where she belongs. She loved Raton it was her home. I am so glad she is laid to rest in the city she loved. There are so many questions we have.? Why, what happened what could of we done?? No one will ever know the truth about her death. All we know is she was not in her right mind and was suffering. In her note she left she said "I want to find GOD". I know she is finally at peace and with God. Now that she is with God she can feel the light and the love she was searching for.
She loved her kids and I know she is watching over them. She is there gaurdian angel. Tristen and Joe Larry where the lights of her life. I know they miss her. Joe has written a song called "Pretty Brown Eyes". Its just beautiful. I know she would of loved it. I just can't believe the stength he has to sing a song to his Mom. Tristen is so much like Berta. She is pretty, strongminded and has so much faith. The strength of these kids is amazing. I hope people make a point to reach out to them. They need support. Berta never got to meet her granddaughter "Nevia". What wonderful kids and grandkids she has. I know family was important to her. She would of been proud.
She is with her father and grandpa, two men she loved very much.
When she was alive she was an important part of the community. Her contributions to the community as a nurse was definitely a high point in her life. She loved being a nurse. She was a caring and compassionate nurse. She was loved by many patients.
Her family loved her so much. She had such an amazing personality. She lit up a room when she walked in. When you met her, you never forgot her. She was so beautiful and so much fun.
I know her Mom "Rosalie" is suffering the loss the most. It is very hard to loose a daughter especially a daughter like Roberta. They will be together someday. She will see her daughter again.
As for me her sister Nancy, oh my gosh the pain never goes away. Its not an easy thing to get over, I will never get over this sad loss. I have so many mixed emotions. Sometimes I am happy for her that she is not suffering anymore. Sometimes I am mad at her for leaving us. Sometimes I feel an unbearable sadness for losing my sister. I can still hear her voice and see her face. I will never let her memory die, she is forever a part of me. She is my heart.......I love her more and more everyday. She is still alive in memory...
I hope anyonoe who loved her remembers her often and says a prayer for her. She might be listening??
Rest in Peace~Berta
