LOVING MEMEORIES… Your gentle face and patient smile with sadness we recall, You had a kindly word for each and passed away beloved by all. The voice is mute and stilled the heart, that loved us well and true, Ah, bitter was the trial to part, From one so good as you. You are not forgotten love one nor will you ever be, as long as life and memory last, we will remember thee. We miss you now, our hearts are sore, as time goes by, we miss you more. Your loving smile, your gentle face, no one can fill your vacant place.

Shirley and I were so fond of Betty and enjoyed framing many of her cross-stitch pieces. You have our sympathy.
