Krista Theresa Berling, 72, of Erlanger KY passed away Wednesday, April 3, 2019 in the comfort of her home, with her loved one’s by her side.

To the family

To the family and friends of Mrs. Berling, please accept my sincere condolences. I am deeply sorry for your loss. May the God of all comfort be with you at this heartbreaking time.

Bob Berling

I remember being at seminars in Louisville on govt. audits and you would bring your better half down to enjoy an outing. Those had to be part of the good times you both had. I know what you are going thru at this time. I lost my wife Mary on Feb. 6, 2019. I know that having 42 years being a diabetic; memory lost past 4 years and seizures the last year that she is in a better place and is another Saint I can talk to.
I know your Krista has to be in the same place since you know that both had to be under pressure married to CPAs.
God Bless You, Harry Tenkotte

Sorry for your loss.

Bob & Family,

Sorry to hear of your loss. You are in our thoughts and prayers.
