Betty, you came into my life when I was very young. Too young to appreciate you. We didn’t start off that well and that was my fault. Later, I would come to realize what a wonderful person and mom you really were. You always treated me as one of your own. You were there for me when my own mother wasn’t. Over the years our relationship got much better, and I have such fond memories of you and the time we had together. Except of course the many times you beat me in Cribbage. I will truly miss you. I will remember you always. I love you. Rest In Peace.

Hi Mom. You wern't a good mom, but you were still my mom. I know people handle situations the best they know how. We never did have it easy when dad left you stranded. Somehow you made it to 91 years old. That is pretty awesome. I seemed to turn out all right as did Missy, we learned to work hard and and be responsible and stay out of the drugs and jail. Love you and I will see you again and we can start all over.
Your Son
