Rest in peace dear Berl. May the Lord's blessings be on you and your family, as you were a blessing to those whose lives you touched.

Dean Jr. and Ruth Murphy

Very sorry to the family for the loss of their father, grandfather, brother, uncle and to all. I remember Berl from Red Bridge Baptist Church, and he always had a sweet smile and a handshake for all who came by.

What a wonderful man Berl was and how lucky I was to be able to work with him. He is now with his Irene and they are dancing! Prayers to the Wilkes family.

On behalf of the Davis family, we are sorry to hear of Berl’s passing. We have such fond memories of Berl and Irene, both from our time at Red Bridge and spending time with our families growing up together. They were both so very kind, always having a smile and a warm greeting. He will be missed but has been welcomed into Heaven by his lovely wife.
