My sympathy to all the family. I served on the Manual Alumni Board for many years with Betty. She did a lot for the committee during that time and put in a lot of hours in planning and going to the reunions. A very nice lady, who I know will be missed by all.

Sorry to hear that your mother died. I cannot be at the visitation or funeral service, but I will pray for you and her.
