I’m so sorry for the loss of Betty. We so appreciated her as a neighbor. She was the first to greet us and welcomed us with donuts. When we faced infertility she sent a special card saying she was praying for us and hoped we would welcome a baby by that time next year. She was right we did have a son almost exactly a year later. I’ll always be thankful for her kindness in our lives.
