I was very sad to hear of Betty’s passing. I think about Betty and Nell and their summer visits at Pleasant View so many years ago. It was always fun picking berries, ball games and of course the music with Betty, Nell and their father, Jim, playing various instruments and singing so many songs that are rarely heard today. I always wanted to hear Frankie & Johnnie and Aunt Nell didn’t much care to hear that one. My deepest sympathy and condolences to Patty Grace, Mike and Nell Boggs and all the rest of the extended family. I am not physically able to attend services but my prayers and thoughts are with you for comfort during this sad time.
Love Arthur
