  • Elaine, Joe & Sue My first memory of your mother was looking out the window and watching the new neighbor walking up that long driveway pushing a baby carriage. Elaine you were in it. I’ve baby sat you all and Sue you’ve babysat mine. We’ve vacationed together, played cards together and had nightly coffee together on the patio. Did mom ever tell you about Tia Maria? We laughed about that for years. I’ll miss our monthly phone calls. She always recognized my voice even to last month. She was a real friend. Love you all. Linda

  • Elaine, so sorry for the loss of your mother. It’s great that you spent so much time visiting her, especially these last number of years to take her shopping or to dinner. She sounded like an amazing woman in how you described her to us at work. God bless you and your family during these difficult days.

  • Dear family,
    I just learned of your profound loss. Betty lived in my parents house long ago. She was the sweetest, funniest, most loving person. Betty and my parents had a special bond that was enjoyable to watch. Now, they’re all together again, I can hear Betty’s laugh as I write this. May she rest in eternal peace and her memory be an eternal blessing.
