  • In memory of my great uncle "Bert. It would have been good to know you. Your spirit and fond memory was always kept alive by your sister, my grandmother throughout her 97 years. She named her first born Alberta in honor of you and named her second child, my father " Pax". He was born when peace was declared November 7 1918.
