A remarkable woman!

    To Fred and family. I was sorry to read of Betty’s passing in the paper. My condolences on your loss. I volunteered and worked with her at the Colonel Belcher Gift Shop for a number of years and I missed her when she left. It was always nice to see and talk to her in the shop and have her help in serving the residents and customers. She did a good job of organizing and displaying items in the shop and looking after the storage room as well as having timely sales. Her talents and time were appreciated. Lynne

    Perhaps they are not
    stars in the sky,
    but rather openings
    where our loved ones
    shine down
    to let us know they are at peace
    and are happy……….

    We were very saddened to hear of Betty’s passing. She was such a gentle, compassionate, and wonderful person who will be greatly missed.
