Godspeed, Bert

This is Bert. He was reactivated in the Arlington Ward (he's from Maine, went to BYU as a non-member, joined the church after graduating, served a mission in Italy) and his story is very interesting. He had some health issues (which left him unable to drive and work) and a change of heart and because of a visit from two members in the ward he realized he still had a spark of a testimony and he came back to church after a few decades of being away. He has served in our ward and has been the most generous friend to everyone. Today was his last Sunday in the Arlington Ward and he will be missed. He has given lots of gifts, supported fundraisers, taken the activity day girls to brunch and given them flowers, given See's suckers out to everyone one Sunday a month, shared his story and testimony. We will miss him. He is moving to Maine to live with his sister. Godspeed, Bert. #arlingtonwardfriendsareforever
