    Bert was a wonderful person. My mother and I were lucky enough to know him while residing at GracePointe. He could play a mean card game and often left the table with the winnings. Bert was a jokester too and so much fun to be around. One day, he took his GPS bracelet off (many GracePointe residents wear them) and attached it on a traveling food cart – just to see what would happen. It still makes me laugh. .

    We miss Bert tremendously. He was a gem of a guy. Our deepest sympathy to the entire Aydt family.
