In Time of Need —
Whatever trials may come-
However dark the hour,
At the Throne of grace we find…
Mercy, strength and power.
God will not forsake His people,
In His precious Word we read…
His grace is all sufficient,
And comes just In Time of Need.

My deepest condolences to Bert’s family. I was so shocked to hear of his passing. I worked with Bert in the Access Building. He was always such a happy and uplifting
guy even through his serious leg break. I will miss hearing his voice and his daily comments over the pod wall in the office. RIP buddy! I believe you are in a much better palce now and free of all pain and suffering…
