  1. Bettie Altenhof :

    Sincere condolences to the family of Botti. Family ties brought us together throughout the years and I have fond memories of her. Aunt Martha was my dad’s sister so as a result the Steinwands and Herrons shared many occasions together spanning many decades.
    Norm and I went to school with Sharon and Gail and my Mom Vanda (whom we lost last September) was great friends with Botti. They had a lot of fun working together at Purdy’s and I saw her quite often during those years.
    Unfortunately I am unable to pay final respects to Bottie as sadly Norm’s brother also passed away last week and his funeral is the same day.
    To Sharon and George, it would have been nice to see you again.
    Bettie Altenhof

    God Bless you for your love and kindness
