Bob & Family, our hearts go out to you, along with our prayers. Betty was a pleasant woman and we enjoyed our times together at Dust Catchers and other Hillcrest events. She always had a smile ready or an encouraging word. Glad you both had all those wonderful travels together, as memories are what keeps us going in the darkest hours.

I am so saddened to hear of my "second mom's", from childhood, passing. I have so many wonderful memories growing up spending what seemed like every day at my friend Butch's house. My favorite time was the holidays. Mrs S would love to cook and bake things that made it a treat to stay over. One such treat were her famous Rosetts. That made christmas time extra special.

Butch, Mr S. I am so sorry about "Mom". She was a special person. If there is anything I can do please let me know.

Love, John Rudker and family.
