Preston, Ashley and family-Betty was our neighbor for some 20 years, she was a very delightful lady and we loved her dearly. We always made sure on holidays that she had a good home cooked meal which delighted her so much. Doug or I would spend an hour or so several times weekly just sitting and talking to her, we knew she was lonely. Now our hearts are broken on her passing but know she is now at peace and rest. She is one lady we shall never forget-she was a good one. Prayers for all the family. Myra and Doug Rosser
