I am so blessed to have known " Grandma Berg ". We visited like old friends since the first time we met. She made me feel very at home & comfortable. She always had a twinkle in her eye ... like she was up for anything, or maybe up to something;) ... and a smile on her face. I already miss her. Heaven has gained a beautiful soul. Sending Sympathies & Prayers to all who loved her, "Grandma Colleen" Huskey ♡
