Dear Gladys, Bobby, Alan and all of Aunt Betty's Loved Ones - My sincerest condolences to you all who took such wonderful, loving care of your Mother and Grandmother. Aunt Betty was a tremendously kind woman with a bright spark of life in her always. I just mailed her a thinking of you card that should have arrived around January 6th. I will miss her gentle voice & sweet words, and inspiring ways! We had such FUN on our last visit with her with Aunt Joanne, Barbara, myself and my sister, Serena. My prayers are with you all.
