I'm writing this for my mom Judy Mitchell whose parents used to live next door to G.W and Betty on Marwood Court. She didn't see the death notice in time or she would of been there. She sends her love and condolences.

Aunt Betty & Family: You brought me into your circle through Ronnie & Gayle and it has been a joy to be the 'Yankee' in the group! You have been in my daily prayers as you walked through this time and I continue to lift you up for His Peace and Loving Arms to hold you close. I have such wonderful memories of dinner or a gathering at the lake and always there were stories of family escapades at the beach. I enjoyed stopping by with Gayle when I was in town and we would share life and scripture from the Sunday sermons. G.W. was a quiet man yet you knew his walk with God was solid and how much he loved his family. May you be comforted by the outpouring of love surrounding you.
