Dear Norm, Karen and family,
Your Mom was one amazing woman and I am so glad myself and family were privileged to know her. She never forgot a face or name ,and when you spoke to her, you truly felt as though you were the only person in the room. She was genuinely interested in how you were and how life was going.
Please know I will never forget Mrs. Selby.
In peace, and always with love,
Bette

A true angel on Earth, who loved so many and exhibited great light and life each day of her life. I will always remember her bright smile that lit up every room she was in along with her amazing wit and wisdom, that inspired generations of relatives over the many years she shared with us. Now joined with beloved husband, Norman and other family and friends, she will surely be watching over all of us until we meet again.

Peace and comfort to all those in mourning this day, as we remember how this amazing woman touched so many lives for so long. May her memory never fade, but be ever present in our minds and lives of those that remain.

Much love to all the Selby and Miller family members,

Myles Miller -- Harrisburg, PA
