Dearest Wendy, I am so sorry to hear about the death of Betty. I remember what good friends your parents were to my parents, Gerry & Ginny Harlow. I have a lot of good memories of being at your house on Buckeye St. here in Kokomo. It is never easy to lose a parent. You were so blessed to have your mother in your life for so long.
I hope you are doing well. My deepest sympathy to you and your family.
