Dear Betsy, Chip and Families:

I was just made aware of the passing of your mother. I will always remember your mother as a loving, welcoming woman who invited me to join your family in her home some 47 years ago. Our deepest condolences on her passing.

Dear Betsy, Chip, & families,
I only recently heard about the loss of your mother, before I left on a trip.
I am Joan Monte, sister of Gerald & Donald Wright, our mother was Beatrice Wright whom you will probably remember.
We were five "boy" cousins and me, the youngest and the "girl". When we had a reunion it was a happy time.
Since moving to Va. Lou and Bea came to visit us and we had a good visit, remembering the past. They said at the time it will probably be one of their last visits as travel was becoming difficult.
My mom always spoke highly of you Betsy & Chip.
My prayers have been with you and although it's never easy, please know that others think of you.
Joan (Wright) Monte

Dear Betsy,Chip,and family,
We were so sorry to hear that Bea has passed away. She and your Dad were the first people to welcome us to Monroe ten years ago. I am happy that you made it all possible for Bea to stay in her beloved home through her final days. Becky you were the epitomy of a wonderful grandaughter-you even made your grandma her favorite cupcakes and made her smile. We wish all your family peace at this difficult time. Sincerely, Carol and Joe

My deepest sympathy Becky to you and your family. I just found out today about the loss of your beloved Bea. I worked with her through Senior Helpers and I always looked forward to our time together. She loved to talked about her life in Monroe. She was always pleasant, considerate, funny, happy, and so proud to be 88 yrs. old. She spoke of you so often as the wonderful Granddaughter that she trusted her life to. You were always there for her, always one step ahead of her needs. She was more than proud of you. She loved you with all her heart. I will miss her as part of my life. May she rest in peace.
