Bernie,
I was so very sorry to hear about Bettys passing. I had no clue you lived that close to me in Florida and didnt get the notice until today. She was a sweet and spunky gal since i was a child growing up in Ellenville. She will be surely missed by all the lives that she touched. Sorry that the last time i seen you and betty was 2 years ago at where else the diner. You will remain in my prayers for healing. God Bless
