This is very sad, following so soon after Billy passed. David and Mark, you have my deepest sympathies.

Odd the things you remember. As a young boy I was always fascinated by that crisp white nurse's uniform. David, Mark, and I would be planning some mischief in the yard and Betty, on her way to work, would tell us to be good; as if she could see the trouble we were soon to get into.

She was always kind and thoughtful to all us neighborhood kids. She was such a good person; she'll be remembered.

It was an honor to be close to Betty in her last few weeks. She was very precious to me. And I look forward to knowing her in eternity.
