I will always remember bunking with her on our Cruise. The best memories were mad those short days. You are forever in my heart. I'm going to miss you but if there is life after you and Sue please be waiting for me.

Aunt Betty and Uncle Danny always made it a point to show up to family events, Graduations, Pumpkin parties, If they got an invite they did their best to be there. I enjoyed my visits with them when I would be in the area. They came to visit my mom a few years ago at her house and we all had a nice visit. Aunt Betty was one of the Best Great Aunts I could have. I will cherish the memories I have with her. So blessed to have had her part of my life. I love you Aunt Betty and will miss you.
