Stephanie, I first met your mother working at MCV/VCU on nights. I remember talking with your mother about you and my experiences regarding attending N.C.A.&T. I just learned of her death last month, please remember she is always with you in your heart, and her memory will last forever.

I am so saddened by the loss of Ms. Mosby "Bertha". She was the sweetest Lady with the warmest heart and a beautiful & loving smile to match. She was encircled by bright light... truly an Angel. To know her was to love her. I will miss her dearly. Praying for you Stephanie, my Dearest & Loving Friend and praying for your family during this difficult time. May God bring peace and comfort to your broken and tear filled hearts. God Bless you all. Love you, Greta & Al Jumper.
