To all of Aunt Betty's family,
I am sorry to hear of your Mom's death. She was a memorable lady. I remember staying with your parents as a little girl, how much fun I had and the delicious food she prepared.
She is now at peace and I'm sure all of you must feel that peace also. I am sad I won't be back in. ND for the service, but I have many fond memories.
Hugs to all of you. My love and prayers, Marjean
