Know we are thinking of you. We're sorry we can't be there to celebrate Betty's life... (Oh that's "AUNT Betty" to me/Jenny and Luann.) We will miss her special brand of humor and that little smirk with the wink she would give when she was up to something, or know we were! And what a great laugh! We started sharing Bud and Betty stories over dinner tonight. We will miss her dearly.
