I was so sorry to hear that your mother had passed away. I always enjoyed visiting with her and with your dad. Our thoughts and prayers go out to your family at this time.
My sincere sympathy. Betty was such a lovely lady. She had the gift of being a wonderful hostess. She always made everyone feel so welcome when we visited her and Art at their home. May her precious memory be blessed.
