Carol and I are so sorry to hear of Betty’s passing. We loved playing pegs and jokers with you and Betty. Such great competition and laughter was shared, along with Betty’ famous meatloaf & mashed potatoes. Those were good days and fond memories. Craig and Forrest remember her getting down on the floor and teaching them a card game at the airport. They still play. She touched a lot of lives, even the waiter at the Cheesecake Factory in Brandon.
Keep the memories alive. You will get through this.
Fond regards,
Dan & Carol
