To All My Cousins
I was Very saddened to hear about Aunt Betty. She was a great Aunt to me and a Greater mother to all of you. She was always a happy person and loved having all of us around as did your dad. Now she will be with Uncle Dick ( the man she loved so much). Love all of you.

To all the Pierce Family:

Please accept my sincere condolences on the loss of your beloved mother. Betty was a wonderful woman. She was so patient and kind, always welcoming so many of us into your home. One of my fondest memories is the time your parents took us all camping on Black Lake at the beginning of summer vacation. I remember all of us girls running down the hill and jumping in the lake, so happy to be free of school and the whole summer before us!

Love,
Anita
