We will miss your Mom! She and your Dad are a part of our memories growing up. It was always fun shopping at Dorthy's and seeing your Mom at the store. Her kindness over the years will never be forgotten. I was able to visit with her at my Mom's services catching up on much of the family news. Your family will be in our thoughts and prayers! Mrs. Bergman was a wonderful lady.
