Thank you all so much for your kind words of encouragement, prayers, and concern.... God is so good to provide such loving relationships in our lives.
Brian's dad, Lester Berta, went home to be with the Lord, the day after his birthday, Nov. 18th. He is an amazing man who touched many lives.He left a legacy of faith and family. It was amazing to look at a Czechoslovakian bible that had been in his family since 1923. He taught his five sons well and it was a beautiful thing to watch how they took care of their mother through all of this. He fought in 2 wars- WWII and the Korean War. He served his country well as a pilot in the Marines.He was an avid golfer and such a jokester! He would always tease us, especially Barb, his wife and his five daughters (in law).
But, we don't grieve as those without hope. We are sad for our loss but rejoice in knowing there will be a day when we see him again. A day when his body will be healthy and restored. A day when we will all be together....HIS mom and dad, his brothers and sisters along with all of ours......a reunion like no other. We rejoice in the promises of God.
Thank you so much for your continued love and support of our family.
