Hi to Nita, Chrissy, and Joel,

I loved your sister. She was a friend when I was young. Later when we were adults, she brought beautiful plants here to Vermont for me to plant in a town garden done by my autistic students. She seemed to enjoy that and I was ever so grateful for her help.

I last saw her at Aunt Marie’s memorial service, briefly since she was going across the street to the cemetery to “say hi to Mom.” Now perhaps they are together. Betty was such a good Mom.

I remember Betsy so fondly, and all of you also. Thinking of you all in your sadness, and wishing you all good memories of your dear sister.

Love, Sara
