Your mom has meant so much to my family for so many years, and words cannot convey how deeply sorry I am for the loss of her . The stories from my parents and Betty Sues past adventures have been a part of my life for as long as I can remember. No matter the number of years there is never enough time to share with those we love. My condolences to you and your family dear Diane.

Diane,
I am so very sorry to hear of your mothers passing. I enjoyed her as a sub teacher for years. I also remember all the times we hung out together with Lisa. She will be missed by so many.
