Craig Clark

On behalf of Jerry Clark, we want to share that Jerry loved his "Big Sis" as he called her and has many wonderful memories of their childhood growing up together. He shared with us a couple of silly stories and he did so with a smile and chuckle and it was clear to see that even though he too suffers from dementia, he clearly remembers his sister and loved her dearly. Jerry wants Betty's family to know that he sends his sympathies and shares in their grief. He is grateful that she is now in heaven with Elmer, her parents and siblings that have passed.
As stated in her services, Aunt Betty was a very classy lady. We so enjoyed the times when Aunt Betty and Uncle Elmer would come out west to visit us. Aunt Betty always asked for pictures of our family when we traded Christmas cards and she cared deeply about her loved ones. She was truly a kind, cheerful and loving Aunt and we will miss her very much.
We want Aunt Betty's family to know that we were with you in spirit today and we were very grateful to get to view the lovely service in her honor. Our love to you all! May we stay in touch as we know that is what Aunt Betty would want.
Craig and Jan Clark (Aunt Betty's nephew and Jerry's son) on behalf of the entire Clark family
