I am so sorry to hear the sad news of Bert's passing. I worked with her for many years in Miami and enjoyed her company. God Bless

I worked alongside "Bert" at the INS Mia DO for a number of years and would rely on her opinions often. We also had quite a few "life" conversations-- between work and life discussions, I always remembered Bert fondly as a tell-it-like-it-is person. May she rest in eternal peace.

I am saddened to hear about Bert's passing. I knew her from the INS at JFK days.
She was always so pleasant and fun to be with. My prayers to her family.
