Thank you for letting me be a part of your life as I feel like I still have a part of Betty with me when I can share my thoughts with you. I was honored to have spent your Moms last week with you, her sister Joan, and Mary, It meant so much for me to be with her in her last days. She will always be missed but never forgotten.
