  1. My heartfelt condolences to the family and friends of Ms. Bertha. I am so sorry for your loss. May you find comfort through the loving and happy memories that you share and those that you keep close to your hearts. May you also look to our loving Heavenly Father, the GOD of all comfort, to provide what you need at this very sad time. (2 Corinthians 1:3,4, Psalms 83:18). He promises us that very soon, “He will wipe every tear from our eyes and death will be no more, neither will mourning nor outcry nor pain be anymore. The former things have passed away.” Revelation 21:3,4, Isaiah 33:24. He also promises us that there will be a resurrection of our loved ones that we have lost in death, and they will have the opportunity to live forever in perfect health in Paradise right here on earth. (John 5:28,29, Psalms 37:10,11). What wonderful promises! Can you imagine a time on earth when there will be no more sickness, pain or death? May all of God’s promises give you a measure of comfort, peace, hope and strength. I personally found very comforting information on when I experienced the loss of my parents and siblings.

  2. I’ve only met “Momo” in person on 4 or 5 occasions, but each time she made me feel like family. She had a love for people as big as Texas and she absolutely radiated joy! It was an honor to know her.
    I know our gracious Lord said, “Well done, good and faithful servant. You have been trustworthy….enter into the joy of your master.”
    Our hearts go out to the entire Bond family.
    With love and sympathy,
    Hal & Cindy Mollenkopf

  3. Martha and Earl,
    I am so sorry to hear of the passing of your sweet mother. My deepest sympathy to you and your family. She was a lovely woman and a faithful servant to her Church.

  4. Sincere condolences to the entire Bond family. Louise, as I knew her, was a great friend to my Mother (Gloria Kocurek), and we had many wonderful interactions with she and Francis and their children. Thoughts and prayers for all as you celebrate a life well lived!

  5. Momo was awesome. She will be missed. Her smile was always large and her hugs were great. Her kids, and their kids, were very lucky to have her. Momo’s time here greatly benefited anyone who had the pleasure of knowing her. A grand dame and a sweet lady. My aunt and an inspiration.

  7. I am so sorry to hear about the passing of Louise. She was absolutely one of my favorite long time
    patients. I love her and her entire family. I know she will be missed by so many. It was an absolute pleasure to see every 4 months in the dental office. She always said if I’m still here, I will be at your office. My prayers and sympathies are with all of you.
    Love, Carol

  8. Our Dear Mrs. Bond. You loved the students and they loved you back. You took such good care of our girls when they were at Ross. They insisted on inviting you to their weddings, and we all enjoyed seeing you. Our sympathies to your whole family. She enjoyed such a long life, Rest In Peace Mrs. Bond.
