Cindy, Glenda, I am so sorry to see that your mom is gone. I will always remember her smile and her good heart. I bet she and mom are already up there laughing and carrying on about the "good times". I have some pictures that I found that I want to give you. Some are of Betty holding Glenda as a baby. They were in some of moms' things that I was going thru a few months back. Please accept my heartfelt sympathy in your loss. Email me so that we can get together. Love to all of you.
