Betty Ann & Family
Mr Adams & Family,

Mrs Adams to all my children; she was a wonderful teacher and woman; when we were Betty Ann's neighbors we would see you all often; I, Rita, enjoyed your "visits" to the bank. Truly a loss.

May she rest in heaven with Mrs Ferguson.

Our condolences,
Rita & Rick Wright
