My name is Morris Renaud from Fresno, CA. Bettie Swartwood was my aunt and married to my mother's brother Norman.
Before they had their own children, when I was a young boy around 10-12. I would go to South Gate, CA where they lived, and spend a week with them every summer.
It was the highlight of my summers and I cherished every moment I spent with her and him. She was like a second mother to me, and I love her so much.
Rest in peace my beloved aunt, until we meet again.
Love you forever, Morris Renaud
